Boozhoo, Wachiya, Kwe, Tansi, She:kon… Greetings. Welcome to the Centre for Indigegogy.
Situated within the Master of Social Work (MSW) Indigenous Field of Study program at Wilfrid Laurier University. Our centre opened in June 2017 with the launch of our Indigenous Peoples Certificate in Indigegogy (formerly the Indigenous Educators Certificate in Indigegogy) and our Decolonizing Education Certificate. Now in our 3rd year, the Centre is offering the following: Indigenous Research Workshop Series, Understanding Decolonization Four Day Intensive and Wholistic Professional Development Workshops. We are offering numerous trainings in Indigenous centred wholistic development to assist practitioners, teachers, learners and helpers strengthen their good medicine, teaching and learning bundles.
Miigwech and thank you for your interest!
Indigegogy is a term coined by Stan Wilson, a Cree Elder and Educator. Indigegogy uses Indigenous knowledge, literature and scholarship and is centred on land-based education. Indigegogy engages Indigenous methodology such as circle work and lifts up traditional teachings, ceremonies and practices. Indigegogy is a decolonizing practice that builds on the resurgence of Indigenous ways of knowing, teaching and learning.
Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario is located on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples. We are grateful for all the Indigenous people who continue to care for and remain interconnected with this land. Miigwech, Nia:wen for knowing that our ongoing survival is connected to the land.
