March 10, 2022 – The 6R’s of Indigenous OER: Re imagining OER to Honour Indigenous Knowledge and Sovereignty

Open education is grounded in Western notions of copyright law and ownership and it often has a goal of making all knowledge available for all people. Within Canadian Copyright Law there is tension with Indigenous Knowledges, Ways of Knowing and Being. Within the open education community there needs to be careful consideration for Indigenous Knowledges and self-determination, which are deeply rooted in community defined ethics and protocols, and that do not fit into ordinary academic contexts.

The below is a recording of a POSE open chat with Kayla Lar-Son who explored some of the concerns around OER and Indigenous Knowledges, while exploring tools, principles, and practices for engaging with Indigenous communities. Kayla Lar-Son is Metis and Ukrainian Settler, originally from Treaty 6 Territory. She is currently the Indigenous programs and services librarian for the Xwi7xwa library at UBC and the program manager librarian for the Indigitization program.
