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. The impacts of settler colonialism on Indigenous peoples will be examined through investigating research projects from non-Indigenous as well as Indigenous researchers, such as Edward Curtis, Brian Brayboy, Kim Tallbear, Cecelia Svnth Carpenter, and Melinda Janko. This program is writing and research intensive; students will create their own ethical evaluation model for research to adhere to while crafting their final research project.  

To successfully participate in this program students need access to a computer, smart phone, and internet.
