New Indigenous think tank at Ryerson addresses “urgent need” for policy analysis

June 6, 2018

Ryerson University has launched the Yellowhead Institute, an Indigenous think tank that brings Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers together to analyze policy and law that affects First Nations communities. “We’re hoping to reverse the very long history of excluding Indigenous people from policy decisions and legal decisions that affect our communities,” Yellowhead Director Hayden King told CityNews. “It should be Indigenous people themselves that make decisions about their future.” A Ryerson release states that the Institute has released its first report, which provides a critical analysis of the Liberal government’s Indigenous Rights, Recognition, and Implementation Framework.
