Our Journey to Decolonize our School Library: Then, Now and Tomorrow
by Megan Price and Rebekah Rustad
The authors describe the process of conducting a diversity audit of Prince George Secondary School Library Learning Commons in British Columbia. The school is located on the unceded, ancestral lands of the Lheidli T’enneh and is the largest high school in northern BC. Indigenous students number in the five hundreds and make up about 1/3 of the student population. Nine Lheidli students live on reserve, and many more live in the city. A large portion of the Indigenous students are Metis. The authors illustrate, relate, and reflect upon sensitivities, successes and challenges of collection and physical LLC development in the diversity auditing.
