What’s of interest? Indigenous Peoples in Education: A Stock Photo Collection – An Image SPLOT

Tell me more!

Our team at Thompson Rivers University created the Indigenous Education Stock Photos collection due to a lack of open-source photos of Indigenous students for use in OER. The spirit of the photo collection is to allow educators to represent Indigenous peoples in their OER so that Indigenous students can see themselves reflected in their learning materials.

This project was funded jointly by BCcampus and the TRU OER Development Grant and developed in consultation with the TRU Office of Indigenous Education and a TRU community stakeholder session. TRU production and media teams and the TRU Open Press assisted in producing the content.

All photos have a CC BY NC SA license:

  • You may use, adapt, and share them, but you must attribute the photographer and link back to the collection

  • You may not use the photos for commercial purposes

  • You must distribute any created derivatives under the photo’s original license

This is one among many items I will regularly tag in Pinboard as oegconnect, and automatically post tagged as #OEGConnect to Mastodon. Do you know of something else we should share like this? Just reply below and we will check it out.

This is awesome! I love the convergence of OER and Indigenous reconciliation.
