Aboriginal Community Based Pedagogies

Indigenous Voices event
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

MURRAY G3

Rural, northern Aboriginal and First Nation communities in Saskatchewan have diverse social, geographic and economic characteristics where communities are tied to the land by historical and cultural traditions.  Disparity exists between urban and rural areas in basic infrastructure (physical, human, organization and administrative structures), communication networks and available community capacity.

Navigating and building respectful relationships within this context requires knowledge and understanding of the holistic and cultural diversity that exists within these communities.  Urban oriented engagement strategies tend not to easily transfer to address specific community based needs in rural, northern Aboriginal and First Nation communities.

In this gathering participants will come to understand effective practices to engage in local protocols, negotiating research agreements, and establishing mutually beneficial relationships.
