Alumna Monique Salud (’19)

Alumna Monique Salud (’19), who now teaches French Immersion at École Traditions Elementary School, highly recommends attending this event and keeping an open mind to the possibilities:

Salud says, “I was very set on just visiting one booth in particular. But my friends told me to be open minded and visit other booths. If I didn’t listen to them I wouldn’t have gotten a contract before convocation!”

The importance of indigenous research methodology

Elder Alma Poitras speaking about her research with her daughter Evelyn assisting at the computer

A crowd gathered for the second annual Indigenous Research event, hosted by the Faculty of Education’s Research & Graduate Programs office and First Nations University, Thursday, September 26, as part of the University of Regina’s Indigenous Research Showcase Week. Elder and Master’s student Alma Poitrois shared about her research, taking the audience through several layers of circles, offering a deeper understanding of her Indigenous worldview and a natural curriculum.

Following a break of bannock and tea, a panel moderated by Dr. Kathleen O’Reilly discussed “What is an indigenous research methodology? and Why is it important?” To begin the panel discussion, Dr. Angelina Weenie offered naskwahamākēwin, accompanying the women with song, to honour their courage and process. Dr. Angelina Weenie, Dr. Anna-Leah King, Mary Sasakamoose, and Ida Swan shared their thoughts about indigenous research methodology and its importance from their own experiences and research.  The panel discussion highlighted the importance of ceremony as part of the research,  of language, of engaging with the heart, of mother, of story, and of song and drum.
