Foundation of a prospective research proposal on "decolonizing" education in Canadian universities. Includes description of objectives, methodology, budget, bibliography, and description of research team. It is not known whether this proposal was ever submitted or accepted.
Abstract- Aboriginal peoples' achievements, knowledge, histories, and perspectives are often ignored or marginalized in universities across Canada and beyond. An interdisciplinary Indigenous research project aims to address the deficit in public understanding and animate a truly postcolonial university, focusing on Elders' guidance, research ethics, educational materials, legitimacy of Indigenous knowledge, hiring of Indigenous faculty, networking, and the Indigenous renaissance in the visual arts.
