NPP: Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Knowledge - Ethics and Research is a program designed for students to explore and critically analyze Ethical Theories (both western and Indigenous) as related to Research Methodologies and Methods. Students will travel the timeline of pre-colonial Ethical Philosophies to contemporary Ethics when embarking upon an Indigenous Research project.
