Session summary: Perspective and experiences of an Indigenous administrator and scholar in the context of higher education colonialism. Indigenous critical consciousness involves holistic and collective perspective involving a critical understanding of balancing Indigenous Knowledge and experiences with that of the western education structures. Kevin Brown will then speak to key points on what it might mean to heal from these oppressive systems, what a systemic redress might look like and how the role of critical consciousness can lead to creative and innovative solutions.
