SSHRC Insight Development Grant

Drs. Couros, Tupper, Montgom- ery and Lewis have received an Insight Development Grant from SSHRC in the amount of $65,909 over 2 years. The project is titled: “Storying Treaties and the Treaty Relationship: Enhancing Treaty Education through Digital Story- telling.” The aim of the research project is to enhance the under- standing of treaties and the treaty relationship in the context of Saskatchewan for K-6 students, teachers and community. The project will be situated in two sites—one in an urban school community and the second in a rural First Nations school commu- nity. The research team and their co-participants plan to use digital media through an inquiry pro- cess to enhance awareness and understanding among students, teachers, and the community of Aboriginal peoples’ experiences, both past and present, through retelling of histories and current experiences. In the research pro- cess, it is expected that the work will disrupt hegemonic meaning- making practices with respect to the manner in which we collec- tively story ourselves in relation to treaties. Finally, the research team with co-participants plan to create new treaty education resources

12 for the Pre-K to 12 curricula.
