Description: Many conversations around open education (OE) focus on a Eurocentric framework of copyright and intellectual property rights that are sometimes in tension with Indigenous knowledge systems. Kayla Lar-Son will explore some of the concerns around OER and Indigenous Knowledges and discuss the 6R’s of Indigenous OER, exploring tools, principles, and practices for engaging with Indigenous communities. Additionally, presenters will discuss an ‘in the works’ edited volume which centres Indigenous ways of knowing, culture, experiences, and worldviews within the work of open education pedagogy and advocacy work.
