Abstract Title: Indigiqueer: Recognizing the Relationship Between Indiginenity, Queerness, and Research
Abstract Type: Collaboration Space
Abstract: In this session we will be examining the relationship between Indiginenity, Queerness, and Education Research. We will talk about decolonization as it relates to research methodology, keeping in mind that we will be talking about the ways that the dominant discourse and the dominant groups influence the ways we participate in, and carry out research.

Folks who attend will take the time to investigate our positionality and identity in a professional context, and brainstorm ways to incorporate Indigenous methodologies and scientific contribution into their classrooms. We will then break out into small groups to research different topics around the ways in which traditional research upholds the dominant Western narrative of science, and ways to go beyond simply acknowledging the original peoples of the land they occupy to being in right relationship with the land and local Indigenous communities.

Coming into this space we ask for participants to practice humility, vulnerability, and active engagement with Indigenous methodologies and ways of being. The goal of this space isn't to just read articles and to discuss them, but to begin learning how to create intentional and authentic relationships with our research, our land, and our community.
