In January 2016 Crystal Fraser guest edited a series of Indigenous history posts for ActiveHistory.ca.
The posts explored questions such as: What are the implications of sharing our research? How can we convey to readers that these are not ‘controversial issues’, but our lived experiences? What role should my own community play in my research? Where do I, as an Indigenous person, fit into academia – a system built and maintained on white privilege and settler colonialism?
This series of posts is a great resource for educators looking to learn more about Indigenous history and culture in Canada. The complete series can be found here.
