Ep. 135: What Does Indigenization of Education Really Mean?

MEDIA INDIGENA : Weekly Indigenous current affairs program

This week, our special live-audience episode in Edmonton, where we discussed… Protocol Schmotocol: What one professor’s slide into another’s DMs on Twitter in search of help on a highly-sensitive subject can teach us about ethical research… ‘Indigenous Renaissance’: Just one of many pointed phrases in the victory speech of Maliseet musician Jeremy Dutcher at this year’s Polaris Music Prize ceremony. But as Indigenous artists continue to rack up recognition in the broader arts world, should we see their success as made-in-Canada, or made despite it? Education ‘Indigenization’: Confused by what different institutions mean by the term? Special guest Adam Gaudry (Associate Dean and Associate Professor, Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta) walks us through what true reconciliation might look like in the academy.

Featuring regulars Rick Harp, Kim TallBear and Ken Williams, it’s the first-ever MEDIA INDIGENA roundtable recorded in front of a live audience. Thanks again to our event sponsorthe U of A Faculty of Native Studiesfor making it all possible!

// Our theme is ‘nesting’ by birocratic.

Indigenous Science, Technology, and Society (Indigenous STS) is an international research and teaching hub, housed at the University of Alberta, for the bourgeoning sub-field of Indigenous STS. Our mission is two-fold: 1) To build Indigenous scientific literacy by training graduate students, postdoctoral, and community fellows to grapple expertly with techno-scientific projects and topics that affect their territories, peoples, economies, and institutions; and 2) To produce research and public intellectual outputs with the goal to inform national, global, and Indigenous thought and policymaking related to science and technology. Indigenous STS is committed to building and supporting techno-scientific projects and ways of thinking that promote Indigenous self-determination.
