The Master of Arts (MA) in Indigenous Governance is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with theoretical and practical skills to examine and address Indigenous governance in both North American and international contexts.

The approach we foster is one that combines a supportive environment for students of all backgrounds while modeling and fostering the highest standards of excellence inside and outside of the classroom. We recognize and honor the central role of language as carrier of culture, conveyor of tradition and knowledge, and signifier of individual and community identity by requiring the study of an indigenous language, for example, Ojibwe or Cree. An international focus will prepare students to take leadership positions in the private and public sectors, to create and influence policy, to creatively approach development and governance from an indigenous perspective, and to promote the visibility and recognition of sovereign Indigenous peoples and communities in Canada and abroad.

In the two-year program, students complete coursework (24 credit hours), and then choose from these two streams to complete the requirements of the degree: 1. write a thesis, which is defended orally and assessed by a committee; 2. complete a practicum assignment with a relevant indigenous organization, community or government.

SAMPLE CAREERS

Graduates may find employment in Indigenous organizations, community or government, serving in a leadership capacity in positions such as facilitators, managers, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers.

SAMPLE COURSES

INDIGENOUS SELF DETERMINATION brings to the academy a pivotal concept for the present and future of Indigenous peoples. How Indigenous peoples face and deal with colonization, imperialism, and globalization will depend upon the critical understanding and realizations of self-determination. The legal, political, social, and cultural connotations around self-determination for Indigenous peoples are considered. The course is focused not only on theoretical considerations but is designed to bring issues of self determination into the collective and individuals lives of those who identify themselves with the concerns of Indigenous peoples.

PATHWAYS TO INDIGENOUS WISDOM In this course, students’ assumptions and world views are challenged and enriched by a deep and complex understanding of Indigenous ways of knowing. By decolonizing and indigenizing the mind, students are open to imagining and, later, implementing strategies that are embedded in indigenous teachings. The course emphasizes the importance of critical thinking through the examination and immersion into indigenous epistemologies and brings to the program the instructor’s expertise in First Nation’s governance, development efforts and systems.

INDIGENOUS RESEARCH METHODOLOGIES AND ETHICS provides a review of the movement towards the decolonization of the Western model of research and the revitalization of Indigenous research frameworks and methodologies. The course also offers analysis of Western research methods and both their histories in colonial practices as well as their potential usefulness in Indigenous community-based research. The unique issues and principles involving ethical research in Indigenous communities are explored.
