Resources for Indigenizing Higher Education

Indigenization is ...

about inherent Indigenous rights and responsibilities that originate in holistic indigenous relationships. It recognizes historical wrongs committed against First Nations, Inuit and Metis Peoples. It requires a commitment to undertake proactive measures aimed at restoring, renewing and regenerating Indigenous practices, languages and knowledge.
