Pulling Together: Professional Learning Series is a six volume resource co-created by BCcampus. These guides, authored by teams of Indigenous and ally writers from across what is now known as British Columbia, are living resources that can be adapted and localized, offering instruction and best practices that post-secondary institutions can use to decolonize and Indigenize.
Pulling Together: A guide for Indigenization of Post-Secondary Institutions
Composing a Personal Indigenization Statement is a fluid and living exercise which intends to encapsulate your vision for Indigenization.
The goal is to create a paragraph or more that will be posted at your desk or in your classroom as a reminder of your why
and how to Indigenize. It is a personal statement that might consider your ancestry, positionality, professional or personal
goals or concerns, as well as your motivation and vision for teaching your course(s). You may choose to include a quote from
a respected person or add a symbol representative of your pedagogical journey or approach to teaching. You may choose
to represent your statement in a visual way. We hope that you will develop your Personal Indigenization Statement over
some time and then revisit and revise it as you develop your thinking and learning.
