This session will lead participants through the importance of weaving together Indigenous Knowledge and International Education, from a local, national and global perspective. Research tells us that school success is inextricably linked to relationships, and none more profoundly than that of the relationships students have with their family and school community. Education, can then be viewed as both a cause and cure for harm and injustice. Within this session participants will weave through the intersection of Why it’s imperative to incorporate Indigenous Knowledge in education globally. As, Researchers cannot delude themselves that they are looking at the same model of education globally, just because us as educators use a common vocabulary (Anderson-Levitt, 2003). Together in this session, let’s examine the Why it’s important to weave together Indigenous Knowledge and International Education. And, How together we can become facilitators of this transformation by learning how to create space within our teaching and leadership practice.
