Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education and Society solicits any work purposefully engaged in the decolonization process, regardless of discipline or field, encouraging work that actively seeks undisciplinary connections that work both against and beyond the Western academy.

Every year in the fall, the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre hosts a Pow Wow.
If you aren't sure what a Pow Wow is, consider it a coming together of the first peoples to celebrate and honour our traditional teachings.
We celebrate drumming, dancing and other elements of Indigenous culture, and we invite everyone to join us. Craft and food vendors are on site, and we often have different stations where visitors can go to learn about different aspects of Indigenous culture.
