Mobilizing Decolonial Praxis
Indigenous Teacher Education Program Spring 2021 Inaugural Conference
We invite you to join us during this time, as we work to create opportunities for educators to re-conceptualize possibilities for Indigenous education.
In ITEP, Indigenous values, languages, and knowledge systems are central to the process of indigenizing teaching and teacher education. Our Indigenous teachers are prepared to infuse such components into their curriculum and classroom practices in schools serving Native students. We strive to privilege Indigenous knowledge systems while contributing to increasing the academic achievement of Native American students and bringing about positive social change in Indigenous communities.
The conference, Indigenous Education: Mobilizing Decolonial Praxis, will premiere critical Indigenous education efforts that mobilize a decolonial praxis in schools and communities serving Indigenous students. The goals of the conference are to:
- Share ITEP teachers' efforts in indigenizing and decolonizing curriculum and pedagogy;
- Contextualize the ways in which educators develop a critical Indigenous consciousness that engages justice-centered pedagogies;
- Create opportunities for participants to engage critical dialogues that further the goal of mobilizing decolonial praxis.
