A new video series out of the University of Saskatchewan is aiming to highlight the work of Indigenous researchers.

The series launched on Thursday afternoon and highlights the work of four Indigenous researchers at the university.

The research projects cover a wide variety of topics from Indigenous health to the positive impacts of Métis jigging.

Matt Dunn is the host of the series and he says it is an opportunity to learn more about some of the research being done by Indigenous faculty members.

“It’s a great opportunity to also learn more about the faculty members and how they got into the research and what motivates their work,” Dunn told MBC News.

The following is the list of researchers highlighted during the video series.

  • Holly Graham, Indigenous Research Chair in Nursing and Associate Professor, College of Nursing, Univeristy of Saskatchewan

  • Deneh’Cho Thompson, Assistant Professor and coordinator wîcêhtowin Theatre Program, College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan

  • Chris Phenix, Assistant Professor, College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan

  • Heather Foulds, Assistant Professor, College of Kinesiology, University of Saskatchewan

During the interview with MBC News Dunn highlighted the work of Dr. Heather Foulds whose research looked at the health benefits of Métis Jigging.

“That was a lot of fun, to not only hear about the work and the positive impacts, but we also got to go into her lab and learn some Métis jigging as well, which I had never done before,” said Dunn.
