About this Event

In response to the success of the Fall 2018 workshop, “Research Collaboration with Indigenous Communities,” the School of Graduate Studies is offering a follow-up event for graduate students to address the desire for more programming aimed at advancing research on Indigenous topics, histories, and/or ways of knowing. This three-hour workshop will be led by Queen’s Indigenous Pre-Doctoral Fellows, Keri Cheechoo, Jennifer Meness, Evelyn Poitras, and Adrianne Lickers Xavier.

The Fellows will discuss their research, methodologies, and highlight best practices for engaging in research with Indigenous communities and histories. Afterwards, breakout discussion led by the Fellows will focus on issues graduate student researchers face in conducting such research. All graduate students are welcome to participate, regardless of their area of research.

Spaces are limited, so register right away! If the event is full, email Heather Merla (heather.merla@queensu.ca) to express your interest and be placed on a wait list.

Speakers:

Keri Cheechoo: Keri is a Cree Iskwew from Long Lake #58 First Nation and is completing her PhD in Education at the University of Ottawa. Her research questions what Indigenous women’s stories reveal about public and customary practices, and policies of forced sterilization. Keri uses poetic inquiry in ways that connect spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, and physically to her writing as an Indigenous educational researcher.

Jennifer Meness: Jennifer is a PhD candidate in the Communication and Culture Program offered by York and Ryerson Universities. Her research focuses on powwow and is informed by Anishinaabe conceptual frameworks and methodologies as well as her experiences as a powwow dancer and ties to her community.

Evelyn Poitras: Evelyn is Nehiyaw Iskwew (Cree and Saulteaux) and is completing her PhD at Trent University, where she studies Nikawiy (mother) and Nitanis (daughter) narratives on the Nehiyaw Iskwew role in governance, leadership, and treaty enforcement. Evelyn is committed to her home community, where she was elected as Headman in 2010 and has produced documentaries on her band, Peepeekisis, as well as her family’s history within the residential school system.

Adrianne Lickers Xavier: Adrianne, an Onondaga woman and PhD candidate at Royal Roads University, is from Six Nations of the Grand River First Nations Territory. Her research focuses on the implementation of a food security initiative at Six Nations. Adrianne is heavily involved in her community and possesses extensive training in transcultural communication, sharing her knowledge with academic audiences across Canada and internationally.
