In the wake of Idle No More and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, disciplines across the academy increasingly recognize the importance of research that engages with Indigenous knowledges. With this work come beneficial collaborations, illuminating questions, paradigm-shifting scholarship – and often, questions from researchers who may be unsure of how to approach communities for consultation and to provide due credit where needed in their writing and publishing activities. In this workshop, an Elder from a local community in Saskatchewan, a university press editor with experience working on scholarly books on Indigenous topics, and a researcher engaged in community-embedded research and narrative inquiry will discuss some of the protocols that researchers working on Indigenous topics need to understand and practice when conducting, writing, and publishing their work.

Speakers: Dr. Kathleen O'Reilly, Associate Professor, Indigenous Education, First Nations University of Canada; Dustin Brass, researcher and instructor, First Nations University of Canada; Karen Clark, Scholarly Acquisitions Editor, University of Regina Press
