Indigenous Peoples Knowledge Community (IPKC): Self-Determination in Higher Education
Waterman, Stephanie J.; Harrison, Irvin D.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n3 p316-328 2017
Special interest groups (SIGs) offer spaces for interests that may not be supported or adequately addressed by the larger organization. NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA) calls its SIGs "knowledge communities." This article describes the ways the members of the Indigenous Peoples knowledge community (IPKC) have indigenized their knowledge community through community cultural wealth, Indigenous knowledge systems, and relationality. Evidence of the IPKC's impact on Indigenous visibility in higher education is presented.
