Religious Studies: Indigenous Research & Resources

Indigenous Ways of Knowing

This page is meant to provide entry points for researchers interested in discovering more about Indigenous ways of knowing to influence their academic research. The focus of the resources provided here are on First Nations, Inuit, and Métis groups in North America and the area that is commonly known as Canada, though other Indigenous groups may be represented in some of the works listed.

It is important to remember when engaging with Indigenous knowledge, people and culture, that just as there are many different European cultures and people, there are many different Indigenous cultures and people. Indigenous people do not exist as a monolith. Indigenous ways of knowing differ between groups and cultures. It's important to be specific about the culture you are referring to and to avoid sweeping generalizations referring to Pan Indigenity.
