Ilzhichegayaang: Cultural Resurgence by and with Indigenous Youth in Canadian Education

Professor Lisa Korteweg & Tesa Fiddler (Lakehead University)
Monday, May 9
11:30am - 2:30pm
McLaughlin College 117

Abstract
Indigenous youth face many layers of challenges to engage in any political participation because they must first ‘get an education’ by leaving their communities and/or losing the Indigenous knowledge tools, cultural capacity, language strength, or intergenerational supports that strengthen their cultural identities and resolve to face ‘settlerstream’ schooling. Izhichegayaang is an Oji-Cree conceptualization of a social movement where a collective decides what they are doing for their self-defined social good and how it is happening as cultural resurgence. We discuss an izhichegayaang approach by and with Indigenous
youth to speak up, stand up and stay strong while getting and changing Canadian education.
