Decolonizing Pedagogy

Decolonizing Pedagogy

We recognize that educational institutions have been used as a tool of colonialism in Alaska and around the world. As instructors, staff, and committed learners ourselves, we are working to remove colonizing values and practices from our teaching and learning, while also learning and practicing Indigenous ways of knowing that have guided communities on these lands since time immemorial. This decolonizing and Indigenizing is an ongoing collaboration and learning process. Through this website, we are sharing resources, materials, and connections to guide our colleagues who must also join us in this working.
