Acknowledgement

 

Humber College is located within the traditional and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Known as Adoobiigok, the “Place of the Black Alders” in Michi Saagiig language, the region is uniquely situated along Humber River watershed, which historically provided an integral connection for Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples between the Ontario Lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe/Georgian Bay regions. Now home to people of numerous nations, Adoobiigok continues to provide a vital source of interconnection for all.

Decolonizing Your Research

Research regarding indigenous communities in Canada has often been completed without the informed consent or consultation of indigenous peoples. When researching indigenous commuities and topics, always remember who did the research: have indigenous voices, perspectives and knowledge been included?

Indigenous voices are an integral piece to any indigenous research. Remember that it is important to carefully examine your sources for authority and accuracy.
