Indigenous peoples are distinct and diverse nations and communities who carry forward the knowledge of millennia in their stories, songs, protocols, ceremonies, and histories. As Indigenous peoples in the place now known as Canada, we know that the knowledge we carry must be authentic, validated, and shared through principled action in order for our peoples to survive and thrive into the future. Join us as we discuss the paradigms and principles of academic integrity based on Indigenous values. Providing the philosophical and the practical, this presentation is designed to explore Indigenous approaches to the caretaking of knowledge for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous members of the post-secondary community.

This presentation will explore the Indigenous Academic Integrity Project. Designed to serve Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars, students, faculty, and community, the Indigenous Academic Integrity project provides insight into paradigms and practices founded in shared values and parallel ways of being. Using a multimodal approach to storytelling, including oral, visual, and written mediums, this presentation demonstrates the formal rigour, validation, and approaches found within Indigenous paradigms that serve to caretake and protect the integrity of knowledge. This resource provides concrete practices that centre Indigenous academic integrity and stem from Indigenous theories and Indigenous research, and it focuses on the principles of relationality, reciprocity, and respect.
