YorkU launches Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages

September 23, 2021
York University has announced the launch of the Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages (CIKL). The new organized research unit, which will be led by York professor Deborah McGregor, will focus on Indigenous knowledges, languages, practices, and ways of being. It will support research based on traditional and contemporary knowledges. “CIKL will foster collaborations and partnerships with Indigenous Peoples and others that create ethical space for dialogue on how research relationships can be envisioned, negotiated, practised in support of Indigenous futurities,” said McGregor. “Creating this ethical space in collaboration with Indigenous Peoples and our colleagues across the University also creates opportunities for critical dialogue, reflection and change to take place in addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges.” YorkU (ON)
