Indigenous Land-based Education

This workshop focuses on how land-based education can be an effective anti-oppressive approach to education and land defence that validates and promotes Indigenous self-determination and sovereignty.

Facilitator: Alex Wilson

Biography: Alex Wilson (Opaskwayak Cree Nation) is a full Professor and the 2018 Distinguished Indigenous Scholar at the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto. Her scholarship has greatly contributed to building and sharing knowledge about two-spirit peoples; Indigenous research methodologies; anti-oppressive education; and the prevention of violence in the lives of Indigenous peoples. Her work focuses on interventions that prevent the destruction of land and water through land-based education.
