Indigenous Reconciliation in University and Colleges

Episode 18 is about reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in universities, colleges and training institutes, specifically, what does NOT count as reconciliation. We have to move beyond land acknowledgments and celebrations and move into substantive changes – those that upend the status quo of dispossession and the university’s role in the silencing of native voices.
