Jeff Denis receives SSHRC Insight Development Grant for community-driven research

Congratulations to Dr. Jeff Denis, whose project “Azhe-mino-gahbewewin: Identifying Local Community Priorities for Reconciliation in Kenora, Ontario” was successfully funded by the SSHRC Insight Development program.

Feb 07, 2019

Dr. Denis developed the research project in partnership with Reconciliation Kenora, a non-profit group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents in the Kenora/Treaty #3 area (Northwestern Ontario) who are seeking to improve local relationships and promote education and healing. These partners will conduct a series of video-recorded sharing circles with Anishinaabe, Metis, and settler residents about what reconciliation means, the barriers and enablers to achieving it, with goals of enhancing understanding of the contextual particularities of reconciliation and ensuring that local Indigenous voices play a key role in informing and guiding a long-term strategy for Azhe-mino-gahbewewin, or "returning to good standing" among treaty partners. See the full list of SSHRC Insight Development Grant competition results.
