The xéʔelɬ Pathway to Systemic Transformation Framework is Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s response and commitment to upholding the responsibilities expressed through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action, the Calls for Justice stemming from the Nation Inquiry into Missing and Murder Indigenous Woman, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people, and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The xéʔelɬ framework was developed with support from the Indigenous Advisory Committee at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. It commits KPU to an ongoing process of systemic transformation through actions detailed in six pathways:
Reflecting upon our own biases: Examine beliefs and biases about Indigenous peoples and cultures.
Open to the Community: Create a system that is culturally responsive and ready for all learners.
Indigenous Voices Matter: Strengthen relationships and partnerships with Indigenous people.
Holistic Learning and Well-being: Weave Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, being, and becoming in education.
Weaving Indigenous Worldviews: Foster sense of belonging, personal growth, well-being, and empowerment.
Thought Meets Action: Commit KPU to annual funding to build capacity for Indigenization across all five campuses.
Photographs commissioned by Len Pierre (Pul-ee-qwe-luck), Katzie First Nation, Special Advisor, Indigenous Leadership, Innovation and Partnership at KPU.
Commissioned photographs taken by Karla Parker, La Casa De La La for Kwantlen Polytechnic University use.
