Virtual event this Wednesday and Thursday open to all
From an Indigenous perspective, research cannot be conducted without relationships.
In fact, some scholars say the relationships are the research.
“For Indigenous Peoples, it’s impossible to separate the two,” says Dr. Niigaan Sinclair, the Anishinaabe writer, activist and media commentator who is professor and acting head of Indigenous studies at UM.
Sinclair is one of four distinguished keynote speakers at this year’s Indigenous Health Research Symposium, which takes place Nov. 16 and 17 in an all-virtual format.
The symposium is free and all are welcome. To register and receive the Zoom link, email indigenoussymposium [at] umanitoba [dot] ca.
