Indigenous / Anishinabek Education Research

Kenjgewin Teg’s Anishinabek Education Research Policy Statement (August 2020) formalizes this long-term vision. With growing and outstanding presence of Indigenous and Anishinabek scholars – together with Anishinabek Traditional Knowledge Keepers in our Mnidoo Mnising location of culturally rich resources – inclusion of Anishinabek worldviews in knowing, seeing and doing will be our academic and community-based research focus.

Our Academic Research

Kenjgewin Teg has contributed to formal academic research through its four-year Anishinaabemowin immersion pilot program and another project that has resulted in development of a Anishinabemowin (language) assessment instrument called Dbishgaademak.
