Abstract

This chapter discusses the implementation of several international initiatives that the University of Regina, a Canadian tertiary institution located in the province of Saskatchewan, put in place to support campus Indigenization. The agenda to support Indigenization is not unique to this particular university; in fact, as this book highlights, it is becoming more “mainstream.” However, what is novel about this approach is how Indigenization and internationalization agendas and practices were intertwined. As such, this chapter offers one understanding of the relationship between agendas of Indigenization and internationalization and how common ground can be found as academics, students, and administrative staff develop a deeper recognition of Indigenous frameworks while critiquing settler-colonial infrastructure. By combining these intentions, this approach provides context-specific theoretical and practical perspectives that seek to decenter and make visible settler agendas.
