Join Michele A. Sam (Ktunaxa) for an engaging presentation at the UBC Learning Circle!

She will examine the context between institutional research approaches and community-based knowledge needs. You will learn about how research can be de-myth-ified in useful, meaningful ways for local community to consider. Finally, Michele will describe how researchers can support and identify the rebuilding and revitalization of Indigenous peoples’ knowledge relationships.
