The current colonial structures that are heavily represented in our education systems, do not benefit our most vulnerable populations. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of First Nations histories, and how to engage in socio-political discourse and social justice issues with children.
Presentation is done in the form of pedagogical narrations, some short video clips, and time for discussion and questions on the topic of reconciliation and social justice issues with children.
