Six Nations Polytechnic (SNP) in partnership with TAP Resources will host the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) 2017 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada from July 24 – July 29, 2017. WIPCE is a triennial event that attracts approximately 4000 highly regarded experts and scholars in Indigenous education from around the globe.
Presentations at WIPCE are intended to inform, inspire and provoke creative discussion for continued Indigenous education success. The theme of WIPCE 2017 is “A Celebration of Resilience”.
In 2015, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued its final report including 94 Calls to Action. The Truth and Reconciliation movement is international. Next year’s conference theme will be, “A Celebration of Resilience”. The role and impacts of indigenous education in truth and reconciliation around the world will be a key focus. Individuals submitting abstracts are requested to link their proposal to this focus, if applicable.
