Nov 1 – BCCIE Symposium

Working on Unceded Territories as International Educators

It is crucial that we, as international educators, are aware we work on ancestral territories that are not our own and taking steps to fully understand what this means is a core part of the work we do.

This symposium will take part on Musqueam land. The day will start with being drummed in by the Coastal Wolf Pack, followed by a territorial welcome by elder and former Chief, Gail Sparrow, who will share the history of the lands. Participants will spend the remainder of the day listening to speakers and taking part in workshops with colleagues on how to use this knowledge to better their own practice as community members, educators, and practitioners, on and off campus, and abroad.

While this symposium will be set in the context of Musqueam lands and people, lessons and takeaways will be relevant to all international educators who practice on unceded territories in BC and beyond.
