Webinar: Indigenous Information Literacy project

On 22 January 2021 at 10-11 US MT (which is, e.g., 17.00-18.00 UK time) there is a webinar Indigenous Information Literacy project (40 min presentation, 20 min q and a). "The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action both demand improved recognition regarding Indigenous Peoples information rights. In response to these documents and to support local Kwantlen Polytechnic University commitments to decolonize and Indigenize, a series of instructional videos were created to encourage faculty to include Indigenous Information Literacy training in their virtual courses. This presentation will outline how the Indigenous Information Literacy project came into being, the process involved in creating the videos, an overview of the content, as well as a discussion on sharing and implementation." It is presented by Rachel Chong, Indigenous Engagement and Subject Liaison Librarian at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Canada, on the unceded traditional and ancestral lands of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen, Qayqayt, and Kwikwetlem Peoples. Chong is Métis through her maternal grandfather’s lineage.
