Alex White Plume

Lakota Activist Alex White Plume lives with his family and extended family on a 2,000-acre ranch near Wounded Knee Creek, SD. We will be visiting with Alex about the morning of December 29, 1890, Wound Knee Massacre and Big Foot Ride.  “The whole Sioux Nation was wounded at that last terrible massacre, and we’ve been suffering ever since. It’s true we have our own ways of healing ourselves from the genocidal wound, but there is just so much historical trauma, so much pain, so much death,” White Plume said, and he would know. It is time for us to just listen, thank you Alex White Plume for your willingness to share with us on KAOS Radio, this Sunday, Dec 27th, 2015 at 4pm. Tune in http://www.kaosradio.org

Research is Ceremony: Indigenous Research Methods with Dr. Shawn Wislon on October 11th, 2015 from 5:30-6pm

Shawn-Wilson

Shawn Wilson, B.Sc. (U of Manitoba, Canada), M.A. (U of Alaska, USA), PhD. (Monash University, Australia). I am Opaskwayak Cree from northern Manitoba in Canada. My personal roles include being father to three boys, being a son, uncle, husband, teacher, student, world traveller, knowledge keeper and knowledge seeker.

In my professional roles as community psychologist, researcher and educated Cree, I’ve spent much of my life straddling the Indigenous and mainstream worlds. Most of my time these days is spent teaching other Indigenous knowledge seekers (and my kids) how to accomplish this balancing act while still keeping both feet on the ground. In addition to being a full-time dad, I also work part-time for the Northern Rivers University Department of Rural Health in Lismore, NSW Australia, building research capacity with primary health care workers. Travelling and meeting people from other nations and cultures has been a big part of my life, as has my work with traditional Healers, Elders and Knowledge Keepers. In my previous book Gwitch’in Native Elders: Not just knowledge but a way of looking at the world, I began to document some ideas about just what an Elder is and how they can be supported. My newly released book Research is Ceremony: Indigenous Research Methods examines some of the similarities in philosophy underlying Indigenous peoples’ research methodologies in Canada and Australia. In addition to further articulating Indigenous philosophies and research paradigms, my research focuses on the inter-related concepts of identity, health and healing, culture and wellbeing.

Area(s) of Expertise International Indigenous research methodologies and epistemologies; Counselling and Counsellor Education, Indigenous mental health and identity; Indigenous health and wellbeing Current Research Activities I am currently working on documenting my parents’ life stories, as they provide living examples of Indigenist philosophy in action.
