Becoming Researchers: Summer Institute in Indigenous Research

The primary goals of the Summer Institute are to support scholarship that enables Indigenous self-determination and to explore and participate in research activities that reflect Haudenosaunee ways of knowing. Animate inquiry through story stems from the Haudenosaunee belief that natural forces in constant motion renews life, just as story told, again and again, maintains and transforms lifeways. We build upon the idea that bringing culture and research to life allows students to create a context in which they interpret the world with them in it.

Who is Eligible to participate in the Summer Institute?
We invite Indigenous students currently or previously enrolled at Six Nations Polytechnic, McMaster University and the University of Western Ontario to apply. We welcome 10 students from each institution.
