Indigenous Studies

Indigenous Knowledge, Education, Research and Applied Studies (IKERAS)

This guide supports UPEI’s new Faculty of IKERAS and its Indigenous Studies minor. It is a living guide. The creators of the guide will work to align it and library collections with the new faculty’s values and to present research materials that are relevant to Indigenous studies research and respectful of Indigneous peoples. The guide will grow and evolve with our learning and with continued input from faculty, students, and staff.
