BIG NEWS! CMN has successfully secured 5 years of funding from the Government of Canada's Strategic Science Fund (SSF)

Tools for Braiding Indigenous and Western Knowledges


Nov 13, 2023, 10:25 AM






Organized by the Canadian Mountain Network, this panel will discuss the challenges of braiding Indigenous and Western knowledges. Despite positive developments in the prioritization and promotion of Indigenous-led research, Canadian institutions need to do more to support Indigenous researchers and their ways of knowing. The first half of this panel will address the systemic and structural problems faced by Indigenous researchers. The second half, in turn, aims to push the conversation forward by giving detail to the exact tools that are needed to braid the knowledges of multiple Nations with Western scientific methods and technologies.
