This workshop seeks to clarify the concepts of decolonization, indigenization and reconciliation, how they are different from each other while at the same time are mutually supportive of the goals in the Action Plan. It will explore ways that the Concordia community can positively contribute to Concordia’s decolonization, indigenization and reconciliation goals.

It presents Indigenous perspectives and discusses obstacles to decolonization, indigenization and reconciliation such as resistance to change, racist attitudes towards Indigenous peoples, academic freedom, power and privilege. It also provides a detailed explanation of the territorial acknowledgement and discusses the protocols for a respectful and effective delivery.
