Indigenous Perspectives of Disabilities and Giftedness: The Role of Indigenous Allyship for Supporting Indigenous Children with Disabilities – 3 days
Indigenous peoples have distinct knowledge systems for supporting their children with disabilities based on their unique laws, ethics, values, and belief systems. These three days will provide an interactive learning journey that includes a review of the historical context of colonization, how colonization impacted Indigenous perspectives of disabilities, and the importance of Indigenous allyship for advocacy for Indigenous children with disabilities. Discussions will include shared learning that will support the development of a practice framework that is culturally safe and relevant for working with and supporting Indigenous children with disabilities and their families in British Columbia.
