The Indigenous Education Network (IEN) is a group of students, faculty and community members who share a common commitment to and passion for Indigenous Education and Research. Founded in 1989 by Indigenous students, the IEN provides an Indigenous presence at OISE and seeks to establish a forum for ongoing and dynamic discussion, action and change. The Indigenous Education Network:

  • Supports students and their study interests in Indigenous education.
  • Advances education research on Indigenous issues.
  • Actively encourages the development of Indigenous curriculum.
  • Collaborates with campus and community groups to strengthen initiatives related to our mission.

The IEN hosts guest speakers, socials and teachings throughout the year as a way for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students to participate in experiential learning, establish relationships and network.

2019 Meeting of the American Educational Research Association in Toronto

Indigenous Education Network

The 2019 AERA meeting in Tkaronto is on the shared lands and waters of the Anishinaabe, and the Haudenosaunee Nations, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. AERA always takes place on Indigenous land. This was true last year, when AERA was on Lenape land, and it will be true next year, when AERA is on Ohlone land. Wherever AERA is held, there have been Indigenous communities living, learning, and thriving for millennia. This is not a land acknowledgement, but instead, a call to acknowledge land and waters and what it means to be in right and respectful relationship with Indigenous peoples.
