Nominations are now open for the 2020 Indigenous Partnership Research Award! 

The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives would like to celebrate the partnerships between Lakehead University researchers and Indigenous communities and organizations by offering an annual award for Indigenous Partnership Research. In the past, research has often been on Indigenous people(s), rather than with Indigenous people(s). Lakehead University believes that research partnerships that benefit both the researcher(s) and the Indigenous community are most likely to lead to more productive relationships with, and improved conditions for, Indigenous communities. 

The Lakehead University Indigenous Partnership Research Award will be jointly awarded to a Lakehead University researcher or research team and a representative from their Indigenous partner(s), be it an individual, community or organization. The award consists of a certificate and a $500 cheque, one for researchers and one for the Indigenous partner.

Please see https://www.lakeheadu.ca/indigenous/ai-tb/call-for-nominations for more information and nomination form. Nominations are due January 31, 2019.

Climate change and mining threaten their livelihoods, but misguided conservation policies pose a greater risk to their ability to thrive in a rapidly changing environment.
