We are pleased to announce the First Annual Aboriginal Education Research Forum – “Shawane Dagosiwin” - to be held this June 1-3, 2005 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The theme addresses key questions: "What is Aboriginal education research?" and "What does education research mean to Aboriginal communities and beyond?” For exploration is the integration of Aboriginal values and perspectives into education research so that our work is respectful and honours children and families. “Shawane Dagosiwin” embraces these commitments.
The three day event features Keynote speakers Dr. Marlene Brant Castellano and Dr. Jo-Ann Archibald both of whom have been instrumental in promoting and developing respectful ways of doing research with Aboriginal peoples. We welcome various presentation styles including: Paper or Oral presentations; Workshops; Roundtable, Panel or Circle Discussion; Poster session; or Sharing Circle. Presentations that may not be formal academic papers yet could engage participants to think of other research processes are encouraged.
