Global Indigenous Skills: Ways of Knowing, Ways of Doing, Ways of Connecting, Ways of Being

University of Calgary is investing in global skills for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, cultivating leadership, identity awareness and global networks related to Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, connecting and being. The project leverages Canada’s only International Indigenous Studies program, UCalgary Writing Symbols Lodge’s Youth Leadership programming and the ii’taa’poh’to’p Strategic Plan. Partnering with University of Auckland (New Zealand), Curtin University (Australia) and University of Tasmania (Australia), the project will fund mobility and provide wraparound programming for 1) faculty-led, collaboratively delivered group study programs and 2) experiential learning: research, work or service-learning placements abroad, within the framework of a credit course.
