We would like to acknowledge that we have gathered on Treaty 6 territory, and that we are grateful to be on Cree, Salteaux, Métis, Blackfoot, and Nakota Sioux territory as well as the ancestral lands of the Papaschase. We recognize the nation-to-nation treaty relationship and hope that our learning and research will contribute to a wider acknowledgement of historical and ongoing colonial violence and that our work will enhance learning about and respecting Indigenous knowledges and traditions.


This site has been updated as of April 2021.

It was our intention to conduct a new survey of Indigenous content requirements in Canada to better understand how the Canadian academy is responding to the challenges of reconciliation and the need for Indigenization in the academy. What we found however, was an apparent national shift in perspective, away from mandatory ICRs and towards more offices of Indigenous engagement and research, and Indigenization strategies. We had the pleasure of Interviewing both Dr. Florence Glanfield and Dr. Chris Andersen on this topic, and we encourage you to read their perspectives on ICRs and the Canadian academy.

The Updates to this site include:

  1. Interviews with Dr. Florence Glanfield and Dr. Chris Andersen
  2. An updated survey of Indigenous content requirements in major Canadian universities
  3. A facilitation guide for Indigenization
  4. Content updates and reformatting the “Perspectives on indigenous content requirements” section
  5. General website updates and maintenance
