McMaster University has announced the launch of the McMaster Indigenous Research Institute (MIRI), which it states is one of Canada’s only institutes dedicated to Indigenous ways of knowing and research. MIRI’s priority is to lead and inform indigenous research, reports the Hamilton Spectator, as well as establishing partnerships with other centres, institutions, and academics beyond campus. “McMaster is the only research intensive university in the province with strong relationships and a physical proximity to local Indigenous communities,” explained Chelsea Gabel, acting director of the institute. “We are poised to take a leadership role and be at the forefront of this important work.”
