Stitching Together an Arts-based Inquiry with Indigenous Communities in Canada and Chile

  • Cindy Hanson University of Regina

Abstract

Community based research and learning can never be prescribed. The SSHRC funded study entitled, Intergenerational Learning in Indigenous Textile Communities of Practice, illustrated this point in many ways. Although it was conceived as community-based research it was not initially regarded as arts-based, this is what it became. Both the data gathering and research mobilization methods were arts-based. The study provided meaningful lessons in informal Indigenous, and intergenerational, learning within textile communities of practice of Indigenous beaders and weavers from Canada and Chile.
