Hilo, Hawai’i hosted the Symposium on the WIPCE Coolangatta Statement on Indigenous Education on March 20-23, 2024. The 3-day event will brought together indigenous education professionals from the WIPCE family to engage in discussion and revisit the following statements:

  • WIPCE Coolangatta Statement on Education -  The statement was drafted at the 1993 WIPCE in Wollongong, Australia and ratified at the 1999 WIPCE held in Hilo, Hawai’i.

  •  WIPCE Indigenous Youth Statement on Education - In 2014, in Honolulu, Hawai’i, an  Indigenous Youth Statement on Education was created by over 100 youth from Hawai’i and the WIPCE family of nations

  • UNDRIP - United National Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ includes a statement on education which was established in 2007.

Symposium attendees reviewed these statements, updated the Coolangatta Statement on Indigenous Education, and offered a new draft for ratification at 2025 WIPCE, hosted by AUT in Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland, Aotearoa, New Zealand. 

*We will be posting more updates about the work completed at the symposium soon.
