Decolonising and Indigenous research

An event bringing perspectives together

Ian Calliou, an Indigenous researcher, and our Project PI Ros Edwards, a non-Indigenous researcher, presented a complementary pair of papers at a QUEST (Qualitative Expertise at Southampton) seminar looking at decolonising and Indigenous approaches to generating knowledge through research.

Ian talked about his project on Canadian truth and reconciliation from an Indigenous perspective and using an Indigenous methodology as ‘getting lost and finding your way home’. Ian was surrounded by members of the audience after his presentation, wanting to know more.
