Universities advance reconciliation by revitalizing Indigenous languages, ensuring Indigenous representation, and bringing Indigenous knowledge to campus. Postsecondary institutions in Canada were called to integrate Indigenous knowledge and teaching practices into the academy. Similar calls to action in the Pacific, such as the University of Auckland’s Strategic Plan to develop mutual partnerships with mana whenua, iwi Māori, and Māori organizations ensure student success. This session features perspectives and models for exploring the intersections and divergences between Māori and Aboriginal students across three themes: a) language revitalization, b) immersion schooling, and c) issues affecting young people and their communities.
