For the past twenty years in my work as a faculty member I have guided settler, pre-service, teacher candidates toward a deeper level of engagement with Indigeneity. I have helped them to let go of their limiting assumptions about multicultural education and guided them toward a vision for reconciliation education. Through storying I will share with you some of my pedagogical practices which allow for a deeper understanding of both Indigenous resurgence and settler decolonization; and I will re-story a vision for curriculum design in Canadian higher education, which I believe may advance our reconciliation efforts.
Dr. Shauneen Pete is from Little Pine First Nation in Treaty 6 territory. Shauneen is a mother and grandmother. She promotes the Indigenization and decolonization of higher education. As a teacher, she works toward settler decolonization in teacher education.
Dr. Pete is a Professor in Leadership Studies at the University of Victoria. She has served as the Executive Lead: Indigenization at the University of Regina. She was also the Vice-President (Academic) and interim President at First Nations University of Canada.
