Indigenization of the academy refers to the meaningful inclusion of Indigenous peoples’ knowledge(s) in the everyday fabric of the institution from policies to practices across all levels, not just in curriculum. How and to what extent does your curriculum content and pedagogy reflect Indigenous peoples’ voices and perspectives across the academy in respectful ways? What does a successful Indigenized decolonized post-secondary institution look? During this reading circle we will discuss Dr. Michelle Pidgeon’s 2016 article, More Than a Checklist: Meaningful Indigenous Inclusion in Higher Education and discuss what Indigenization means as it relates to institutional initiatives (e.g., policy, programs, and practices).
