World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education

Over the past 30 years, WIPCE has grown to become a major international event in the Indigenous education movement, hosted triennially.  WIPCE draws Indigenous representatives from across the globe to share successes and strategies for culturally grounded Indigenous education.

The conference attracts highly regarded Indigenous education experts, practitioners, and scholars.  As a result, WIPCE is the largest and most diverse Indigenous education venue in the world.  The conference continues to lead the discussion on contemporary movements in education that support Indigenous worldviews.
