The Potlatch Methodology

“The Potlatch is a high‐context (ancient, culturally and spiritually informed) approach designed to apply intercultural/transformative learning concepts necessary for witnessing greater intergenerational learning and success. At the micro level, the method can be used to engage your students and to design your lessons plans and rubrics; at the macro level, its utility can also serve to respectfully engage community scholars to help indigenize your institution (Wilcox et al. 2008). In this article, we model the ways in which we create inclusive teaching spaces by incorporating our Indigenous languages, storytelling, and ways of knowing and learning into our courses and teaching approaches.”
