In this presentation Dr. Dustin Louie will examine three unique educational approaches for Indigenous girls. Myriad teachers, researchers, and organizations have recognized the strengths of Indigenous girls, while also clearly understanding the ways in which society oppresses this population. By examining three approaches, Dr. Louie gives insight into replicable programmatic or practical responses. First, an examination of his doctoral work and sexual exploitation prevention education for Indigenous girls. The findings of this study can impact school and community-based approaches to exploitation or MMIWG. Second, the research findings and responsive programming from a northern First Nation that unearthed lowered expectations for Indigenous girls from students as early as six and seven years old. Finally, Dustin will examine an emerging program from a First Nation in British Columbia, where he is partnering to create a school-based girls program that promotes leadership, healthy relationships to their bodies, a sense of empowerments, and is based upon traditional rights of passage education of the Dakelh people. Combined, these three approaches can provide insight into the innovative educational approaches to supporting Indigenous girls.
