Canadian Journal of Native Education
2013 Theme Issue
Indian Control of Indian Education – 40 Years Later

The Canadian Journal of Native Education (CJNE) is pleased to announce a cooperative editorship for the 2013 CJNE theme issue with
• Michelle Pidgeon, Simon Fraser University
• Jo-ann Archibald, Q'um Q'um xiiem, University of British Columbia
• Graduate students

In 1972, the National Indian Brotherhood (now Assembly of First Nations) in Canada released the Indian Control of Indian Education Policy Paper (ICIE). The IEIC Policy Statement addressed the following areas in relation to Indigenous education:

• Local control of education
• Parental responsibility
• Programs, curriculum, values
• Teachers and counselors
• Facilities and services
• Research

Now, 40 years after the release of the Indian Control of Indian Education Policy Statement, the editors of the 2013 theme issue of the Canadian Journal of Native Education believe it is time to ask the following questions:

• What progress has been made in any of the areas included in the IEIC Policy Statement?
   What are indicators of success from Indigenous perspectives?
• What have we learned about overcoming systemic barriers to the IEIC? What lessons emerge from our research practices that inform Indigenous    education for/by/with Indigenous peoples?
• What else needs to be done to realize the ideals and approaches of the IEIC?
• How can current Indigenous provincial, national, and international treaties, policies, jurisdiction, and agreements advance Indigenous education?

We value the educational self-determination and sovereignty movement of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people in Canada, and Indigenous Peoples internationally. Therefore, the 2013 CJNE theme issue, Indian Control of Indian Education – 40 years later, is interested in receiving papers from authors locally, nationally or internationally that address Indigenous approaches, challenges, and considerations posed in the questions above. Preference will be given to research papers.

Please send two digital Word copies with abstract (one digital copy to include name and contact address info and one digital copy without name and contact info for blind review) to: CJNE uses APA style. Submissions should be no longer than 6,250 words in length. Articles over the word length will not be reviewed.

Deadline: January 31, 2013
