Helping music educators develop critical practices through research, training and discourse to build a more equitable future.
Our work means centering BBIA (Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Asian) voices, knowledge, and experiences to challenge the historical dominance of white Western European and American music, narratives, and practices that has resulted in minimization and erasure throughout our field. There is no end point of being "decolonized," only constant learning, reflecting and growing.
Decolonizing the Music Room sits on the ancestral land of the Kitikiti'sh - the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes (https://wichitatribe.com/) We pay respect to the original caretakers of this land, as well as their descendants and all Indigenous peoples who continue to make contributions to the land- past, present, and future. We honor the long history of Indigenous resilience, and recognize Indigenous ways of knowing that have been carried into the present.
