Organized by: ArcticNet

High-quality collaborative research is needed to meet the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing Arctic. Indigenous Peoples in Canada’s North are well equipped to lead high-quality Arctic research of priority to Northerners. In this session, we hear from research leaders, combining Indigenous and western approaches. In sharing the successes and challenges from programs including ArcticNet’s North-by-North Program, the Arctic Inspiration Prize and the Canadian Mountain Network, we learn how research in the Canadian Arctic has been and will continue to be shaped by Indigenous voices.
