Six Seasons of the Asiniskow Ithiniwak: Reclamation, Regeneration, and Reconciliation is a project based at the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures (CRYTC) at the University of Winnipeg. Its goal is to move forward the ongoing work of reclaiming Indigenous languages, histories, and knowledges among the Asiniskow Ithiniwak (Rocky Cree people) of northern Manitoba, with a specific focus on addressing the young people of these communities through the development of a series of picture books, picture book apps, and teachers’ guides.

This roundtable will explore the opportunities and the challenges of collaborative, community-engaged research across disciplines and sectors, paying special attention to the opportunities and challenges of working with Indigenous communities. This event is organized by the Association for Research in Cultures of Young People (ARCYP).
