Pîkiskwêtân, the Indigenous Learning Series, is a continuous series of decolonizing and anti-racist Indigenous awareness training and professional development workshops. The series is open to Concordia staff, faculty and students.
This workshop is designed to bring awareness to current and future researchers of the impact of research on Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations. Discussion topics include: access to communities; data management; Indigenous perspectives on and experiences with research; OCAP principles; intellectual property rights; and Indigenous research ethics and protocols. Participants will be invited to reflect on respectful and mutually beneficial ways to conduct research. They will also explore ways to facilitate Indigenous participation in research, building Indigenous research capacity and adequately preparing graduate students before they undertake research on Indigenous people and/or in their communities
