BCcampus releases final installment of BCcampus Indigenization guide project

August 26, 2021
BCcampus has released the final installment of its BCcampus Indigenization guide project. The project has been designed for Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers, postsecondary research departments, teaching faculty, and those working in community partnership roles. It provides guidance on incorporating Indigenous methodologies and the respectful and ethical collection of data. “This guide is meant to help find the ethical space between Indigenous knowledge and institutional research,” said Gabrielle Lamontagne, coordinator for Indigenization and Collaborative Projects at BCcampus. “Historically, much of the research into North America’s Indigenous communities has been done by outsiders, and there have been a lot of issues with ethical practices.” The guide is available online and will be distributed physically to 25 postsecondary institutions in BC.
