Current Truth and Reconciliation efforts around mathematics generally begin at the wrong place, with the nearly universal and conventional mathematics (Global Math) commonly taught in schools and universities. To truly succeed in Reconciliation, we must begin with Indigenous Maths, with Creation even, and we must carefully and critically explore the relationships between the many Indigenous Maths, the one Global math, and Indigenizing mathematics.
Edward Doolittle is Kanyen’kehake (Flint Nation, Mohawk) from Six Nations in southern Ontario. He earned a PhD in pure mathematics (partial differential equations) from the University of Toronto in 1997. He is currently an Associate Professor of Mathematics at First Nations University of Canada and at the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan.
