Decolonization, engagement and multi-sectoral collaboration from an urban Indigenous perspective.

The research project will look at how EndPoverty Edmonton has engaged with the diverse Indigenous population that lives in Edmonton on their interests and perspectives on eliminating poverty. Indigenous peoples and communities continue to experience social and economic inequality as compared to other Canadians. Their social and economic inequality can be linked to the impacts colonization which has marginalized Indigenous peoples and require them to conform to the cultural values of mainstream society. Increasingly, Indigenous peoples are calling for increased control and influence over those issues that affect them. Potential benefits to EndPoverty Edmonton include understanding ways to incorporate Indigenous interests and perspectives in the development and implementation of their engagement strategies and in their collaboration with Indigenous peoples.
