Embracing the Critical Consciousness Theory in an Indigenous Context with Harley Eagle
We welcome Harley Eagle to the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health, presenting live from the UBC Learning Circle Critical Consciousness.
This session will delve into the systemic nature of oppressive systems from the perspective and experiences of an Indigenous man in the context of colonialism. It considers the impacts both on individuals as well as the larger societal legacy and current realities. Harley will then speak to key points on what it might mean to heal from these oppressive systems, what a systemic redress might look like and how the role of critical consciousness can lead to creative and innovative solutions.
