With the conclusion of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the release of the TRC Calls to Action, there is increased awareness that Indigenous education needs to be front and centre. This interactive workshop will unpack the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and discuss the role of educators in meeting the commitment made by the Canadian government to the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the world. This workshop will also connect the objectives of UNDRIP with the TRC Calls to Action in order to ensure schools acknowledge their responsibilities towards FNMI students and communities.
