Office of Indigenous Initiatives presents Mbwaach'idiwag podcasts

Embedding Indigenization and decolonization promises into institutional practice is difficult and nuanced work. Join Western’s Office of Indigenous Initiative’s Sara Mai Chitty as she visits with Indigenous Peoples and allies who seek to bridge the long-held divides between Euro-Western and Indigenous communities through their work in the areas of curriculum, research and beyond.

By sharing stories of Indigenous education work happening across Turtle Island and amplifying Indigenous voices, Mbwaach’idiwag aims to provide listeners an opportunity to learn from and with Indigenous Peoples.
