A University of Saskatchewan researcher hopes her latest project will help Indigenous knowledge be included in resource management.


M.J. Barrett is one of 23 researchers recently awarded funding.


Barrett hopes to develop curriculum that would support using different knowledges, including Indigenous knowledge, in the context of the duty to consult.


She says what often happens when Aboriginal people offer wisdom or perspectives, those get filtered through a Western lens and are misunderstood.


Barrett welcomes anyone living in northern Saskatchewan who wants to participate in the study to contact her at the university.
