Indigenous knowledge & methodology

The main focus of this course is to develop an understanding of decolonization through the indigenous ways of knowing; from their paradigm, pedagogy and epistemologies drawn from research with the Cree, Lakota and Haudenosaunne. Research topics will include political issues, culture, spirituality, family, society, justice and land struggles. Methodologies include Indigenous peoples’ understanding of their natural and cosmological environment and how these philosophies impacted the relations with Euro Canadian society historically and presently.
