A graphic recording from the presentation “Rethinking Success for Indigenous Students: Intersecting Dynamics of Health and Cultural Relevance in Shaping Educational Environments” at Summit 2012. For many Indigenous students, success means more than making it through to graduation. In this presentation, diverse experiences and meanings of ‘success’ were explored with a grounding in Indigenous perspectives on health and wellness. The presenter used her own experiential knowledge, as well as research findings,
to illustrate how the inclusion of principles of relationality, self-determination, and agency are central to understanding individual well-being within the context of colonialism in Canada.
