Feedback form is now closed.
While there are numerous perspectives situated in languages and origin stories, among Indigenous communities around the world and in North America, there are threads of commonality. I will introduce you to some of the threads that I’ve come to learn from my Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Holders, and teachers. I will then invite you to imagine the ways in which the threads might inform the recurring equity issues in mathematics education. Perhaps we need to ‘look’ and ‘see’ differently and be informed by perspectives that are situated in teachings of relationships, balance, and commonalities in order to imagine a new way to think about equity. These perspectives, and our subsequent actions as teachers, leaders, and educators, will help us to collectively achieve the goals of a high quality mathematics and science education for ALL youth.
