Description

Looking Back to the Potlatch as a Guide to Truth, Reconciliation, and Transformative Learning
- Dr Justin Wilson & Aaron Nelson-Moody (Tawx’sin Yexwulla)

The Potlatch as Methodology describes the important role that teachers have “in recognizing the impacts of systemic inequality on Indigenous Peoples” and extends the relevance of this act to intercultural educators, who likewise, have a responsibility to validate the experiences of the students who “experience the visibility/hypervisibility of colonialism every day and to act on this so that they also feel heard, understood, and valued in our classrooms.”

It highlights five aspects of how to create successful and inclusive learning communities and shows how we can bring diverse participants together “to co‐create communal, holistic, and experiential solutions to community challenges in/outside the classroom.

Justin Wilson, PhD, is the Chair of Indigenous Studies at Langara College. Aaron Nelson Moody is an acclaimed Coast Salish artist and instructor of Langara’s unique Reconciliation Carving Series.
