At its best, the language of academia can be thought –provoking. At its worst, it can be very confusing. Words like decolonization, settler identity, indigenization, resurgence, and many others have been in the academic parlance in the past 10 years. But what do they mean; where do they apply; how are they lived, represented, embodied?
This workshop will invite attendees to explore language and the ways in which we utilize words to represent who we are, and to reflect on ways in which we can engage in meaningful conversation about the shared responsibilities we hold as citizens of this country. Through Indigenous pedagogies, we will explore ways in which we can learn to shift perspectives, unlearn, and re-frame our distorted understandings of the world, and of the words we have inherited to talk about, describe, and teach about Indigenous people.
