Reconciliation with Radical Thought, Action, and Heart

Len Pierre (Pul-ee-qwe-luck) is Coast Salish from the Katzie First Nation. He is an educator, TEDx Speaker, Knowledge Keeper, and cultural practitioner who specializes in decolonial, reconciliatory, and Indigeneity work with organizations. With a background in adult education and Indigenous methodology, Len aims to decolonize and transform corporate systems, approaches, policies, and curriculum content in any professional discipline. Len will talk about how reconciliation can move from 'knowing' to 'doing' in higher education. Len says, "We have everything we need for the journey ahead." There are countless documents, research, and literature led by Indigenous peoples that give us the blueprint to build reconciliation into our practices, policies, principles, and physical places. Len will guide us through reconciliation strategies, ethics, dilemmas, pitfalls, and leave the floor open for further dialogue.

Please contact indigenousdialogueseries@kpu.ca with any accessibility questions or accommodation requests.
