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

Jane Stinson

Year of publication:


This second fact sheet from the Learning across Indigenous and Western Knowledge Systems and Intersectionality series 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.
