Project title: #strongresilientindigenous: _An exploration of Indigenous feminisms, decolonization and resurgence

Department: Priority Initiative - Gender Studies

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Laura Parisi

"My research project will focus on the experiences of Indigenous feminists who practice resurgence by enforcing decolonial attitudes and actions within their lives and the communities they reach in the province of BC. Indigenous feminisms have many modalities and are often exhibited through decolonial and resurgent practices of reculturation and place­ based practices. I will glean "best practices" and lived experiences by conducting a number of interviews with Indigenous feminists who operate within governmental, educational, community-based, and non-profit institutions. It is my goal to allow the words of my elders and teachers to speak for themselves, therefore many of these interviews will be written verbatim."
