Decolonizing Community Engagement In The ‘Era of Reconciliation’: Why Researchers Need To Rethink How They Work With Indigenous Communities

Derek Kornelsen, holds a PhD in Political Science from the University of British Columbia and is an Assistant Professor with Ongomiizwin: Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, at the University of Manitoba.

He is currently involved in several community-based projects examining impacts, initiatives, and policy frameworks regarding resource and energy development in Indigenous contexts.
