Launch of New Institute

Carleton’s Ānako Indigenous Research Institute will bring together researchers, students, and Indigenous communities to foster dialogue and understanding of ethical, balanced, and respectful research with Indigenous peoples and in Indigenous territories.

Ānako’s launch in the summer of 2021 responds to the the Calls to Action laid out in the Kinàmàgawin (Learning Together) Report and builds upon the foundations laid from 1993 onwards by Carleton’s Centre for Indigenous Research, Culture, Language and Education (CIRCLE).
