Lakehead celebrates the launch of the AKI to promote Indigenous self-determination, research practices

Lakehead University launched the Anishinaabe Kendaasiwin Institute (AKI) on Monday. The AKI seeks to support mino-bimaadiziwin among Anishinaabe peoples, nations, and territories through research that is situated in Anishinaabe Kendaasiwin and good relationships. “Historically, research has been extractive in nature – to the detriment of Indigenous peoples and lands,” said AKI Director Dr Lana Ray. “AKI was founded on the premise that if research is done right it can play an important role in advancing the visions and needs of Indigenous peoples and lands.” Lakehead Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
