First Nations and Indigenous Studies (FNIS) is involved in a number of special projects and initiatives in addition to the student projects that occur within our course work. Some of these projects are ongoing, and some have operated within a limited time frame. Explore our ongoing and past projects at the left menu.

Research is not limited to faculty: our students are involved in important, community-focused research through the fourth-year research practicum, the capstone of the FNIS major and an experience that many of our majors cite as the most meaningful part of their entire undergraduate careers. The training provided by FNIS is one that makes a difference both within and beyond the classroom, and faculty and students alike share a deep commitment to the transformative potential of ethically and intellectually rigorous scholarship.
