SFU, UAlberta, UBC named as partners on five-year, $30M USD Indigenous knowledges centre


Simon Fraser University, the University of Alberta, and the University of British Columbia will play an important part in a five-year, $30-million USD international initiative focused on bringing together Indigenous knowledges and Western science. The Center for Braiding Indigenous Knowledges and Sciences (CBIKS), based out of the University of Massachusetts Amherst with research also occurring in eight international “hubs,” will connect Indigenous knowledges and Western sciences to solve the pressing issues of today. UAlberta states that the Mountains and Prairies regional hub will host work from UAlberta, with Kisha Supernant (UAlberta) leading one of the working groups. SFU and UBC are listed as partners on CBIKS’s website.
