Module 2: Anti-Indigenous Racism
This interactive scenario uses a series of videos and multiple-choice questions to enable you to apply your knowledge about anti-Indigenous racism safely and with low risk. In this activity, you will have the opportunity to view a snapshot of the first day of an intern named Chris. You will be presented with a few situations that Chris and his colleagues encounter and options on which choices you think they should make, as well as questions about the situations in general. As you make your selections, you will be able to gain insight into the impact of your choices on these real-life situations that may arise in the workplace.
Please take a few minutes to go through the scenario below. After you have completed the activity, please review and reflect upon the discussion questions that follow.
Discussion questions from the scenario include:
- When decolonizing the way we think, a priority is to believe that everything we do is relational rather than transactional. Why is it important to acknowledge that relationships are not solely transactional?
- Appreciating the emotional toll and frequency of addressing anti-Indigenous racism an Indigenous person may experience, what are ways you can intervene to show allyship and combat discrimination?
- What themes and topics from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Report are you familiar with?
- What might be some TRC recommendations that are related to or should be considered by your sector or profession?
