Working in Relationship with Indigenous Communities 

Created at Nipissing University 

What does it mean to work with Indigenous communities in a good way? A group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous allied scholars, mentored graduate students,  Elder-in-Residence, and community partners met in circle at Nipissing University to share knowledge, advice, and best practices. Research with Indigenous  communities is fundamentally based in relationships. This circle discussion also shares the challenges that can arise when these relationships are situated within the broader context of academia.
