Integrating Indigenous Perspectives into Teacher Education in Alberta
Anti-Indigenous racism is the result of a lack of knowledge about Indigenous peoples according to Senator Murray Sinclair (Ho, 2019). Teacher education is one of the most powerful ways to combat racism towards Indigenous peoples as it impacts not only pre-service teachers but in-service teachers, their students, and their families. Alberta’s new Teaching Quality Standard was released in 2018 (TQS, 2020) and requires all Alberta teachers to possess and apply a foundational knowledge of Indigenous peoples. The study examines how teacher education institutions in Alberta are integrating Indigenous perspectives into their programming and how they plan to further this integration through collaboration between institutions and connections with schools.
