CSSE invites all conference delegates to attend the following special events.
CSSE is honoured to have Dr. Jo-Ann Archibald Q’um Q’um Xiiem, OC, deliver the 2019 CSSE Plenary Lecture, entitled Indigeneity, Reconciliation, and Education: The Next Conversation.
Jo-ann Archibald Q’um Q’um Xiiem will share Indigenous stories and perspectives about the successes and challenges of bringing Indigeneity, reconciliation, and education together in Canadian education early learning, K/12, and post-secondary contexts. She will reflect on the impact of national Indigenous educational research, commissions, policies and approaches to situate the past and current conversations on and actions for Indigenous education. Embedding Indigenous knowledge systems in educational curricula and programs, ensuring Indigenous communities are educational partners, and engaging in reconciliation efforts have been part of many educational conversations over the years. Indigenous characters such as Raven, Eagle, and Thunderbird also have long-standing educational histories and experiences. They will participate in this presentation by telling their stories and posing critical questions for the future. Now is the time to enter into new research and educational conversations to move Indigenous education forward in innovative and transformative ways. So, what is the next conversation?
June 2nd, 4:30 to 5:45 pm
Scarfe Building, Room 310
