Celebrating Indigenous Education Week: The role of allies in Canada's reconciliation
Start Date: 3/8/2019Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 3/8/2019End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:

Canada’s reconciliation process has been one of fear, excitement, mis-steps, stumbles and victories. Throughout this process we as a country have been feeling our way through an unknown process that changes daily. Indigenous people are fairly sure of their role in this process, but what about non-Indigenous Canadians? Erin Hodson has some thoughts.

Erin Hodson is Wilfrid Laurier’s Indigenous Curriculum Specialist. Erin is of Kanien'kehá:ka descent, Turtle Clan. She received her MEd with a focus on the Social and Cultural Context of Education from Brock University in 2017. For almost 10 years, Erin worked for the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education where she created and taught courses focusing on Canadian history through the understanding of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Erin has been involved in several research projects investigating the state of Indigenous education in Canada. During her research, Erin has witnessed firsthand the benefits of engaging with Indigenous culture for both her own people’s sense of self within mainstream education and for benefit of non-Indigenous people. Erin has been an outspoken advocate for including Indigenous content throughout all levels of education.
