Indigenous Research Issues and Opportunities: What have we learned?

Date: Thursday January 29th, 2015

A panel with:

  • Dr. Cash Ahenakew Assistant Professor, Educational Studies
  • Dr. Cynthia Nicol Associate Professor, Curriculum and Pedagogy
  • Dr. Amy Parent Post-doctoral Fellow in Indigenous Education with the Indigenous Education Institute of Canada

Facilitated by Dr. Jo-ann Archibald, Associate Dean, Indigenous Education

Often, Indigenous research has been positioned as problematic, which implies that researchers have not engaged in respectful approaches. However, much has changed in the Indigenous research landscape, especially in the last ten years. Faculty members who have worked effectively with Indigenous communities and organizations shared their research stories and reflections in order to highlight the benefits and opportunities of their research. They also shared issues that they faced.

This session encouraged a larger discussion with those present.
