2. Learning Across Knowledge Systems: What are Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing?

2. Learning Across Knowledge Systems: What are Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing?

This is the second fact sheet of the series. This series responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) call for reconciliation through collaborative projects, education and research.

Overview

This fact sheet offers a starting point to bring Indigenous and Western perspectives into conversation with one another. However, there is no single Indigenous or Western way of knowing and one must avoid reducing vast and varied traditions to simplistic and general terms.

It also underlines the risks of integrating these knowledges and explores research frameworks that can draw together Indigenous and Western approaches to knowledge creation.
