Although colonization has taken many forms and influenced a variety of unique communities, the experience of colonization does have many similarities from place to place and people to people. Technology is seen as a way to share the experience of colonization as well as share in the process of decolonization. Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society is a peer reviewed online journal which is “committed to supporting and advancing decolonization scholarship, practice, and activism”. The journal has produced a number of volumes per year since 2012 and has released one issue this year. Instead of focusing on academic theory and paradigms, the journal claims to focus more toward grassroots and lived experiences of decolonization.

The Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society Journal “is a peer-reviewed, online Open Access journal committed to supporting and advancing decolonization scholarship, practice, and activism within and, more importantly, beyond and against, the academy” (regardless of discipline and field). This appears to be a potentially important research link.
For 20 years the Association of Book Publishers of BC has produced a catalogue of books to assist teacher-librarians in selecting Canadian books. Less than a decade ago they added another catalogue that being Canadian Aboriginal Books for Schools. Even though the link is for last years copy, I have this year’s edition sitting on my lap. All the books in the catalogue are either written by, published by, are about or are for Aboriginal people.
