Workshop 1:

The first in the series of three workshops devoted to recruiting and mentoring Native American graduate students and conducting responsible, collaborative research with Native American communities. These workshops are organized by the Plateau Center for Native American Research & Collaboration and The WSU Graduate School, with support from the PNW-COSMOS Alliance (funded in part by NSF AGEP-T grant #1432910). Each workshop will be offered twice, on consecutive days, in order to maximize the number of people able to attend. Refreshments will be provided.

In the first workshop, we will provide basic information about Native American history, federal and state policy, and tribal sovereignty.  We will also discuss the importance of these topics to higher education and the approach taken toward them by scholars of “Indigenous Research Methods.”

This workshop was offered on April 20 and April 21, 2016
