121.1 Teaching and Scholarship

    Four distinct yet related principles underlie the Faculty’s Program of Studies. The first principle is respect for Indigenous knowledge systems, including languages, cultures, and philosophies. The second principle is the University’s emphasis on research excellence. Third, the Faculty is student-centered, dedicated to enhancing the student experience and helping students develop both knowledge and the analytical and research skills that are suited to address problems of current Native interest. Fourth, the Faculty and all its members are committed to connecting to and collaborating with Native communities. Together, these principles focus on the ability of the Faculty to develop a broad capacity to address issues affecting First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples past, present and future.

    The Faculty is broadly interdisciplinary in approach, while at the same time it contributes to the development of Native Studies as an emerging and distinctive discipline. Land, language, self-government, as well as personal and community well-being are among the most vital issues identified by Native communities in the Canadian West and North. These issues and the emphasis on research have shaped course development. At the same time, the Faculty responds to changes in both Native communities and the broader Canadian society.

    The Faculty of Native Studies has gained international recognition for exceptional teaching and research activities. We offer students the opportunity to work with award winning professors such as:

    Canada Research Chair

    B Parlee (Joint appointment with Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology)

    Henry Marshall Tory Chair

    S Carter (Joint appointment with History and Classics)

    McCalla Research Professorship

    F Tough (2005)
