Strengthening All Our Relations

Keywords: collaborative research, interconnectivity, relationships, engaging community


This article is a reflection on an education research project, based in a Mi’kmaw community, which brought together staff and students from North Queens School with community members from Wildcat First Nation to collaborate in a project involving Atlantic salmon and bass in the Mi’kmaw community. Framed in the Mi’kmaw concept of msit no’kmaq (all my relations), the writing explores four strands of interconnectivity that exemplify how engaged scholarship with Indigenous communities is based in respectful and reciprocal relationships. The four strands represent relationships: between adults, adults and children, humans and salmon, and people and the land.
