The “decolonization” movement in the Americas is an effort to recognize and rectify state, educational, and cultural hegemony. It understands how it is based on the original ideology that supported the colonization of Indigenous peoples. It relates to the continuing oppression, inequities, violence, and other disharmonies that affect all of us now as relating to disruption of Indigenous ways of being in the world.
This Indigenous worldview, one that guided us for 99% of human history, has proven to be foundational for relatively peaceful, healthful, and joyful societies, and for sustainable ecological and environmental life systems. With this in mind, decolonization also calls for engaging in worldview reflection.
During this interactive webinar, Four Arrows introduces a metacognitive strategy for engaging in worldview reflection. He also offers answers to our questions about the many challenges facing those who wish to participate in the decolonizing and Indigenizing movement on behalf of future generations.
