Event description

Description

Brigitte will briefly introduce us to her research on Know*ledge Constellations and Re*constellating. This includes an overview of how the relationship between ‘Indigenous Knowledge’ and ‘science’ is perceived in the environment-related literature along with implications of this language for how we think about bringing together knowledges. In particular, she will discuss the relational research approach she used including co-creating narratives with her participant colleagues through conversation and establishing the relational or collaborative validation of the stories.

After this overview, the group can identify specific topics to focus on and we will engage in some co-learning around these narratives and methods.

Dr. Evering is a professional educator with over thirty years experience teaching various subjects including Indigenous-and-environmental studies/sciences, mathematics, science, dance, and cooperative education. She continues to be involved with the HEIC (Health, Environment, and Indigenous Communities) research group and the youth outreach program TRACKS (TRent Aboriginal Cultural Knowledge and Science). She was part of the Chiefs of Ontario Working Group that developed a First Nations Environmental Assessment Toolkit. She is now a research associate with the Indigenous Environmental Studies/Sciences program at Trent and a PhD doula working with the Indigenous Studies PhD program.
