Human Development, Learning and Culture (HDLC) offers graduate programs, and contributes to the preparation of pre-service teachers. This project will support today’s generation of teachers and students to more deeply engage with Indigenous Peoples, perspectives and experiences, both past and present. The goal is to build decolonizing pedagogical principles and anti-racist practices to both support graduate students and teacher candidates, and as a community-building process. The process will be supported through an Open Wiki resource that locates the infrastructure for this virtual work on the ancestral and unceded territories of xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations. We acknowledge with respect the diverse histories and cultures of all Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island.
