Indigenous Youth Voices: A Way Forward in Conducting Research With and by Indigenous Youth
Assembly of Seven Generations
Indigenous Youth Voices (IYV) is excited to announce that, in partnership with the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society (the Caring Society), has received the SSHRC Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation—Connection Grants
Our goal is to ensure that the knowledge produced by this research will empower Indigenous youth to better identify research, programs and services that work and do not work for them, and will also support youth in conducting their own youth-led research. The knowledge shared in the gatherings will inform a position paper to SSHRC on best practices for engaging with Indigenous youth in a holistic and ethical way.
Currently, IYV has conducted 6 sessions in Ottawa, Haida Gwai, Edmonton and Toronto. Sessions included LGBTQ2S+, urban Inuit, Metis, and diverse Indigenous youth leaders from Toronto and Winnipeg.
