In Our Voices: Sheridan’s Indigenous Community and Allies is an arts-based research project conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Indigenous Learning and Support at Sheridan College. The larger research project from which these findings emerged was focused on the dual purposes of understanding how the Sheridan community views the role of an effective ally to Indigenous communities and to highlight stories of strength, resilience and discovery of Sheridan’s Indigenous community members. The research was funded by a Sheridan College SRCA growth grant. This study received ethics approval from the Sheridan Research Ethics Board in May 2018. Data collection began in September 2018 and was completed in March 2019. This report focuses on the findings that emerge from interviews with faculty, staff and administrators and Sheridan’s Indigenous community members as well as from an online survey that sought to understand what it means to be an ally to Indigenous communities.

The three videos below emerged from Phase 1 of the research project and feature the voices of Sheridan’s Administrators, Faculty and Staff.

Video 1: What does it mean to be an effective ally to Indigenous Communities?

Video 2: What can Sheridan do to be more effective allies to Indigenous Communities?

Video 3: How can Sheridan students be allies to Indigenous Communities while they are at Sheridan and as they enter the field?
