Indigenous Speaker Series: Meixi
How might schools contribute to the thriving of families, communities, and the lands where they live? Meixi explores how educational systems can be transformed when teachers, researchers, young people and their families cultivate ethical relationships of consent and reciprocity with lands and each other. Drawing from critical sociocultural learning theory and Indigenous concepts of health and well-being, she discusses the life-generating possibilities of interweaving family-based and Indigenous ways of knowing with science and mathematics.

Dr. Meixi is a Hokchiu learning scientist and former teacher who grew up with the Lahu tribe in northern Thailand. She is currently a Presidential Postdoctoral fellow in American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota. Meixi's work is centered on strengthening our collective ethical commitments to other human people and the rest of the living world.
