U of T OISE librarian creates online resource for Indigenous educational content

July 25, 2018

Desmond Wong, a librarian at the University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), has compiled a list of 50 Indigenous education resources in response to the cancellation of the TRC’s curriculum writing sessions for K-12 education, reports CBC. "I compiled these items so that teachers would have something that they could look to that are largely created by Indigenous educators, artists, and authors to bring those authentic world views into their classrooms," Wong stated. "I think it's a responsibility for all of us as settlers to learn about these things and to celebrate Indigenous people and Indigenous students for the gifts that they have and the knowledge that they carry." CBC adds that the resources include books, Indigenous language materials, and TRC materials for educators. CBC | U of T OISE (Resource)
