Principal Investigator: Deborah McGregor/Co-Investigator: Lisa Myers.

Funding: SSHRC Insight Grant.

Term: 2021-2025.

The project aims to define what it means to "live well" from a self-determined Indigenous perspective. Building on previous SSHRC-funded research, the project team will focus specifically on the Anishinaabek concept of mino-mnaamodzawin (well-being with all life) as a
framework for envisioning Indigenous-derived climate futures for the benefit of not only Indigenous peoples but of all society and the natural world. The project will document and advance existing understandings of mino-mnaamodzawin in the face of climate change (knowledge gathering); revitalize Indigenous (Anishinaabek) knowledge, and share Indigenous climate change knowledge with Indigenous communities, governments, policy-makers, academics, climate scientists/researchers, ENGO's, and the public.
