Tout ça mis ensemble, c’est sûr qu’il y a des gens qui se sentent bousculés. Par contre il y en a plein d’autres qui trouvent formidable le nouveau vent qui nous amène vers un avenir où les Premières Nations auront une place digne de l’héritage qu’elles représentent dans la vie publique et dans la cartographie du territoire.André Dudemaine Une intempestive action de dénomination s’est déroulée le jeudi 14 juillet dernier à l’angle des rues McKay et Sherbrooke dans l’ouest du centre-ville de Montréal. Canadian Research Chairs need more Indigenous representation, researchers say. Canada’s Indigenous people are a common topic of academic study, yet they remain under-represented in academic leadership, according to a recent analysis by an Edmonton researcher.

Canadian Research Chairs need more Indigenous representation, researchers say

Last week, Janis Geary, a health sciences PhD researcher at the University of Alberta, spent hours combing through the list of current Canada Research Chairs, and recording how many identified as Indigenous and how many identified as “experts” on Indigenous issues. Canada Research Chairs are distinguished professors who receive funding from the Government of Canada to lead research. Of the 1,600 active chairs, only 52 list First Nations, Metis or Inuit issues among their areas of expertise, Geary said. Indigenous Canada - University of Alberta.

By dlewis84 April 26, 2017 Okay, I am going to address a sensitive issue here, just because there is so much silence around it and it is what I call Spiritual Colonialism.

Let’s Talk Spiritual Colonialism – Yeye Osun

I have witnessed over and over again people in the spiritual circles lifting and taking indigenous knowledge: Those of African descent, Native American, Asian. Then these people make this knowledge their own with no regard for the source of where they obtained the knowledge. They never mention their sources and will even quote back work that has been painstakingly gathered and tell you they had an original vision of it. Please folks, this sense of privilege and abuse of the indigenous person and their knowledge just has to stop. The worse thing about Spiritual Colonialism, is that those who do it, feel extremely insulted if you dare to even mention it to them. Until we can speak this issue out, own it and stop it, then we are not working towards breaking the collective narrative of pain, suffering and imbalance.

The 77-page report, which is the product of months of research and evaluation, makes ten recommendations to enhance experiences and opportunities for Indigenous peoples and researchers in Canada by decolonizing libraries and archives and their practices. “The Truth and Reconciliation Committee was the first committee established by CFLA-FCAB when the federation was founded,” said Peter Bailey, Chair of CFLA-FCAB. “Canada’s library community is strongly motivated to support universal access. We aim to provide services that create opportunities for everyone while respecting all cultures and promoting cultural products.”
