Improving the health and wellness of Indigenous communities begins with capacity-building for students, researchers, and institutions of higher education. We are committed to support the research interests of Indigenous communities, and link them with appropriate students who, in turn, feel supported to conduct this research in the academy.
The Atlantic IMN offers scholarships and seed grants to students and early career researchers through our Kausattumi (Innutitut for 'the dawn') Grants Program.
In 2019, the Atlantic Indigenous Mentorship Network is supporting the Indigenous Researcher Summer Institute, Our Resurgence, in Labrador. This event is an annual Indigenous-taught, intensive research methodology institute for 10-25 Indigenous researchers. Our Resurgence is rooted in Indigenous traditions in research with a focus on respect, relationships, responsibility, and reciprocity at all stages of knowledge production. The event is being organized in partnership with the Labrador Institute in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL and will be held in the Upper Lake Melville area from August 19-23, 2019.
