Title: Indigenous Information Literacy project


The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action both demand improved recognition regarding Indigenous Peoples information rights. In response to these documents and to support local Kwantlen Polytechnic University commitments to decolonize and Indigenize, a series of instructional videos were created to encourage faculty to include Indigenous Information Literacy training in their virtual courses.  


This presentation will outline how the Indigenous Information Literacy project came into being, the process involved in creating the videos, an overview of the content, as well as a discussion on sharing and implementation. Following the presentation there will be opportunity for Q&A. 


(40 min presentation, 20 min q&a)
