researchersResources for Researchers at Queen's Series

The Office of the Vice-Principal Research in collaboration with the Office of Indigenous Initiatives proudly present: Respect, Relevance, Reciprocity and Responsibility: The "4Rs" of Indigenous Research - a storytelling and Q&A session. Indigenous research is conducted by or with First Nations, Inuit, M├ętis or other Indigenous societies and individuals while engaging with Indigenous knowledge systems in a culturally appropriate manner. In adhering to the principles such as respect, relevance, reciprocity, and responsibility, Indigenous research facilitates the enactment of relational accountability which is fundamental to building strong research partnerships with Indigenous communities. The "4Rs" of Indigenous Research (Kirkness & Barnhardt, 1991) is a useful self-reflection tool that helps researchers lay foundations for meaningful research projects and build relationships in a good way. Listen to Queen's Elder in Residence and staff members engaged in community based research share stories, thoughts and reflections on incorporating the principles of respect, relevance, reciprocity and responsibility into their research practice. Please be prepared to bring Indigenous research-related questions as there will be time allotted for an open Q&A session.
