Dr. Jeff Corntassel shares his experience using the First Nations Perspective to decolonize research.
About the Webinar: Braiding and Restorying Indigenous Research Methodologies: Engaging with Responsive Research
With extensive experience in practicing community-centered research methods, Dr. Jeff Corntassel and Dr. Jacqueline Quinless developed an approach called “Responsive Research” in 2017. This talk will examine the ways that relational accountabilities, responsibilities, and strength-based approaches are key strands of a responsive research model. Utilizing a braiding methodology, Corntassel will look at examples of how Indigenous knowledge systems are woven alongside western methods in ways that are distinct from a “two-eyed seeing” approach. From a Responsive Research perspective, research processes developed by and for Indigenous peoples that affirm and strengthen their self-determining authority are just as important as research outcomes.
This webinar is a presention of the CES-ON Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Oppression (DEIAO) Committee.
