Research with Indigenous peoples has had a long and fraught history, yet some of the initiatives at McGill aim to be wise, transformative, and in partnership.
This page highlights a sampling of recent McGill scientific work about Indigenous health and education, published by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous faculty and students. If you would like to showcase your respectful work with Indigenous peoples here, please email us.
