Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder

Building Relational and Effective Partnerships with Indigenous Communities

Join James Rattling Leaf Sr. for a discussion of best practices to establish relationships and collaborations with Indigenous communities.

James Rattling Leaf Sr. will outline recommendations for working with Indigenous communities based on the knowledge that long term relationship building with these communities is the foundation upon which educational programs, research collaborations, and other initiatives must be co-created.

This presentation seeks to define best practices in approach and process for establishing and maintaining effective collaborations with Indigenous communities that respect sovereignty and self-determination and which have application across many types of efforts.

These practices will have a lasting impact on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at universities, professional societies, educational organizations, and agencies, on the STEM workforce broadly, and for Indigenous youth and communities toward realization of their dreams and aspirations.
