Supporting Family Literacy and
Post Secondary Transitions:
Resilience researchers working with Indigenous communities are increasingly called on to incorporate Indigenous worldviews into the research process. There are challenges to this as Indigenist methodologies in many ways contradict dominant Western approaches to research.
Remote and Indigenous communities in Northern Canada face challenges in accessing education and there are few opportunities for adults to continue to learn once they have left school. Our project aims to use television, web-delivery and mobile platforms to design and deliver educational programs to young adults and their families aimed at supporting successful transitions to post-secondary education.
Through the use of television, technology and participatory action storytelling, we highlight themes of dis/connection, un/learning, colonization, and reconciliation.
Join us in September 2017 as we share our emerging insights about the challenges and possibilities of doing research with Indigenous youth and communities in ways that contribute to both resilience and Reconciliation.See more
