"Indigenous Pedagogies of Love"
XITO's 6th Annual Summer Institute
July 5-7, 2019
XITO’s 6th Annual Summer Institute focuses on Indigenous Pedagogies of Love as a means of liberation and self-determination for our communities. Developing opportunities for students to love their own humanity and to regain the capacity to love from within and without is the aim of Indigenous Pedagogies of Love. This 3-day institute, located in Tucson, Arizona, is an opportunity to engage in and learn about the decolonizing and re-humanizing theories and methodologies behind the successes of the former Tucson Mexican American Studies Program. This gathering is not a conference but rather an intensive professional development opportunity with applicable, goal-oriented work participants can bring back to their own communities. Facilitators will share the liberatory, research-based pedagogy and community organizing skills that has nationally led to the success of K-12 youth of color and communities of color in general.
