School of Child & Youth Care Commitment to the TRC: Decolonizing Praxis

The School of Child and Youth Care is committed to decolonizing practice. We are responsible
for presenting all of our courses with a decolonized lens that acknowledges, affirms, and
enlivens the Calls to Action as presented by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of
Canada. We are also committed to working closely with communities and the CYC field to
ensure that historical harms are not replicated and reproduced through unexamined normative
social practices and policies.

As a starting point, decolonizing praxis is practicing and supporting Indigenous self-


determination, land sovereignty, resurgence, and understanding how colonization impacts and
implicates settlers in intersecting ways. Furthermore, decolonizing praxis helps to understand
the differential impact of colonialism on Indigenous people, new immigrants, refugees,
1sojourners, and racialized and white settlers. It reveals how colonialism has contributed to the

social construction of race, sexuality, gender, class, and ability, and the persistent oppressions
that come with these constructions.

In practicum, as in other CYC courses, we will be asking students to articulate their own
individual commitments to situate politicized praxis in the multiple contexts they are practicing.
Students will be given the opportunity to explore and understand what it means to practice
from a decolonizing stance and make a commitment to social justice work with individuals,
families, children and youth who have encountered historical, structural and systemic
oppression. This practice incudes the work of unsettling inherited settler privileges, being
accountable to the ignored history of colonization, identifying and addressing the impact of
colonial violence on racialized people and thinking about ways that students can help shift and
change the context in their practicum. This goes well beyond utilizing Euro-western theories of
helping and caring. Students will be responsible for decolonizing their own praxis that embodies
the “knowing, doing, becoming, and being” to enhance and enrich current standards of practice
to be more inclusive, political, and socially just.

Midpoint:

Madison was able to attend grade 6 at Gordon Head Middle School and had the opporuntity to
observe a young male, from a very conservative muslim family, manage the discussion around
sexual health. She observed the difficulty he had with the information (often muffling his ears) .
It was a learning opportunity for Madison to see how information around sexual health is
impacted by youth with strong family values and how we can address this response. Also how it
impacts our sense of justice around issues related to sexual health, consent, and relationships.

Final:

Conference last week that celebrated health centres on excellent transformative change in
health care. I would suggest checking out the NorWest Community Health Center in Thunder
Bay (short video clip about it that I am searching for on line to show Madison). Another
speaker was Nobel Peace Prize nominee Sheila Watt-Cloutier who is in the business of
transforming public opinion into public policy. Sheila is the author of the award-winning
memoir, The Right to Be Cold: One Woman's Story of Protecting Her Culture, the Arctic
and the Whole Planet. There is lots of great info on programs and services serving this
population that Mdison might want to check out.
