In Skoden, instructors, staff, and administrators consider how to decolonize and Indigenize those aspects of their work at Seneca they are responsible for. Through a lens of looking back to understand how to go forward in reconciliation, participants learn about Indigenous teachings, Canadian colonization, the history and impact of treaties, and contemporary Indigenous challenges and resilience. This learning opportunity will assist efforts by Seneca College to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA People Calls for Justice, and improve all students’ experiences. Reconciliation is not an Indigenous issue or responsibility. We are all treaty partners. Skoden encourages non-Indigenous instructors, staff, and administrators to consider what it means to be a treaty partner, how they can address the Calls to Action and Calls for Justice in their own practice, and how to stand with Indigenous communities.
Skoden meets weekly on Tuesdays, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern (virtually).
Registration is now closed.
