In support of the University of Manitoba’s commitment to decolonization, the office of Community Engaged Learning (CEL) set out to create a framework and resources to guide them and other community engaged learning practitioners that work with Indigenous communities. The framework and resources offer a set of principles and practical strategies that community engaged learning practitioners can apply at different stages of their work with Indigenous communities. Each principle is informed by the values and practices that CEL learned about in their comprehensive consultations. The framework organizes what they learned into seven principles and five stages along a pathway to Indigenous Community Engagement that begins with the work before the work and continues on well beyond the close of our partnerships.
CEL has created two important resources to guide community engagement practitioners that work with indigenous communties, both of which can be dowloaded here:
