In this webinar, Dr. Sasakamoose will present the Indigenous Cultural Responsiveness Theory (ICRT) as a decolonized pathway designed to guide research that continuously improves the health, education, governance, and policies of Indigenous Peoples.

Decolonizing practices include privileging and engaging in Indigenous philosophies, beliefs, practices, and values that counter colonialism and restore well-being.

Dr. Sasakamoose will discuss how the Cultural Responsiveness Framework was developed, why it is needed to help restore Indigenous wellness in Western society, and its implementation in various projects.

Dr. JoLee Sasakamoose is an Anishinabe (Ojibwe) from the Three Fires Confederacy in Michigan and Ontario with membership in M’Chigeeng First Nation and is an active citizen of Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation in Saskatchewan.  Dr. Sasakamoose is the recently appointed Research Director of the Indigenous Wellness Research Community Network in Saskatchewan. 

She is an Associate Professor in Educational Psychology and Counselling at the University of Regina.  Dr. Sasakamoose serves as a methodologist with the Saskatchewan Centre for Patient Oriented Research (SCPOR).
