Abstract

Indigenous Knowledge systems, given the space and opportunity can make a valuable contribution to western pedagogy. However, in the realm of academia, western knowledge has been privileged and is the most accepted way of thinking, knowing and doing. To incorporate Indigenous Knowledge, researchers must decolonize their research. Acknowledging and incorporating Indigenous ontology, epistemology and methodology, or decolonizing research, results is research findings that are more reflective of the current Canadian reality.
