Proposal Abstract

The 94 calls to action issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in 2015 include calls on education, such as Sharing information and best practices on teaching curriculum related to residential schools and Aboriginal history and Building student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect. (Atlas of Public Management accessed 10 Dec. 2018). As Moira MacDonald (Apr. 2016) states in Indigenizing the academy (University Affairs. accessed 10 Dec. 2018), Indigenization can take different forms from constructing buildings inspired by indigenous cultures or creating campus gardens with traditional plants to erecting bilingual street signs on campus roads.

Statement

In this short presentation, I will share my experience of indigenizing the curriculum in my TESL 3030 Intercultural Communication Studies course. The participants will be introduced to several activities used in class and students’ reflections.
