As summer turned to fall of 2012, 275 delegates from 33 post-secondary institutions came together at the University of the Fraser Valley’s Aboriginal Gathering Place.  The purpose of the Gathering: To discuss Indigenization – a way of making the university welcoming for Indigenous cultures, knowledge, learners, faculty and staff.

Discussion groups included members of the Aboriginal Elders, community, students, administrators, faculty and indigenizers.

Over three days, two keynote speakers, multiple guest speakers and discussion groups produced what we called Indigenizing the Academy.
