Lesson Plan


Activity created by Katherine Yngve, CILMAR, IDA+A, Purdue University, and Dr. Dawn Stinchcomb, College of Liberal Arts, Purdue University

Yngve, K. & Stinchcomb, D. (2022). Centering Indigeneity  [Activity created for CILMAR Decentering Whiteness summer professional development course].

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to: 1. Identify the value systems of indigenous populations who previously owned the land upon which they now live. 2. Reconsider the current values that program and education systems are centered upon. 3. Apply indigenous values to these contexts by reflecting upon how to successfully decenter whiteness and center indigeneity.
