For Roots and Relations (R&R) Submissions to CJPE:
- I declare that I am the lead author and I identify as an Indigenous person.
- My submission is connected to evaluation.
- The submission adress one of the following doorway:
a. Eastern Door – Be a Good Relative. We come to the work rested and ready in ways that reflect
traditional, cultural, and spiritual ways of knowing as a process where we respectfully listen and seek
to understand first, then decide on best pathways together.
b. Southern Door – Be of Good Mind. This is the awakening, rooting, and centering of pre-contact and
post-contact Indigenous and community- centered and created knowledge and practices that are
restorative, regenerative, strength based, protect the privacy, and respect the sovereignty of
Indigenous nations related to data, cultural, intellectual, human, and non-human.
c. Western Door – Do Good Work. This supports the development of culturally specific responsive and
regenerative strategies, studies, policies, processes, and work products that align with the need for
healthy, reciprocal, respectful and relevant Indigenous approaches to evaluation.
d. Northern Door – Be on a Good Journey. Using the wisdom of our Ancestors and Elders, we will be
grounded in traditional knowledge to celebrate and share what is working and embrace and learn
from challenges. We will support walking on sacred pathways for innovative and sustainable
Indigenous evaluation that inspires the next Seven Generations.
