International Indigenous Voices in Social Work

Editor(s): Michael Anthony Hart, Amanda Dawne Burton, Kimberly Hart, Gladys Rowe, Deana Halonen, Yvonne Pompana
Contributors: Joanna Zubrzycki, Susan Young, Kenneth James Walker, Judy Syrette, Katrina Stratton, Silvia Straka, Tom Simms,

Book Description

In 2013, the International Indigenous Voices in Social Work Conference was held in Winnipeg, Canada, with Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants from all over the world. This book is a collaboration of works stemming from this conference, and reflects the conference’s theme of Indigenous Knowledges: resurgence, implementation and collaboration. As Indigenous scholars and practitioners and non-Indigenous allies, the contributors here see the importance of Indigenous Knowledges for social work and related professions. Furthermore, they recognize that the colonial structures that are in place throughout the globe can only be dismantled through reliance on Indigenous knowledges and practices. This book makes a leading and impactful contribution to these anti-colonial and Indigenist efforts.
