Title: Shiibaashka’igan journey from Soul Wound to Indigenous Pedagogy

Presentation by Karen J Pheasant-Neganigwane

In this presentation, Pheasant-Neganigwane will speak from her experience as a Soul Wound impacted Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibway woman); and how it manifests itself to critically engage with the topic of Indigenous pedagogical approaches to her doctoral research. Since 2011, Karen has taught and studied with Edmonton Public School, University of Alberta and now faculty with Mount Royal University (Calgary). Prior to this, she taught in her home community, Wikwemikong, Ontario. She is the eldest child of parents, who are both Indian residential School (IRS), and contributes that life experience to value the importance of recognizing and valuing Indigenous knowledge systems (IKS). Both because of the trauma impact to IKS, and the rekindling of IKS, in relation to Indigenous pedagogical systems. Her preliminary research work is based on the philosophy of Shiibaashka’igan (Jingle Dress), which is a dance of the Anishinaabe people, spiritually gift to them for healing. As tremendous literature exists on Indigenous deficiencies and/or intergenerational trauma impact resulting in an abundant of pathologized labels and/or terms; it is Karen’s premise to take a proactive tactic to addressing this topic via a research methodology of autoethnography and hermeneutics.

Instructor: Karen Pheasant-Neganigwane is an Anishinaabe dancer, educator, writer, artist and orator from Wiikwemkoong on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. Her grandparents, maternal and paternal, come from Wiikwemkoong. Her parents are residential school survivors. Karen is a PhD candidate in Educational Policy Studies/Indigenous Peoples Education at the University of Alberta and is an Assistant Professor at Mount Royal University in the Treaty Seven region. She is cross-appointed to the Department of General Education, Office of Teaching and Learning, and the Department of Humanities-Indigenous Studies. Karen lives in Calgary.
