A Raven’s Story About Indigenous Teacher Education: Honouring Place, Community, and Culture.This presentation highlights the 40-year history and experiences of a Canadian Indigenous teacher education program – NITEP at the Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia. A Raven story and logo has guided NITEP’s philosophy, values, and structure so that the program honours and builds upon place, community, and culture. Dr. Archibald will share stories about NITEP’s leadership, community engagement, and ways that Indigenous Knowledges have shaped, strengthened, and challenged those associated with NITEP. Raven’s persistence, commitment, and transforming nature will have an important place in these stories.
