Mission:

Indigenous Science, Technology, and Society (Indigenous STS) is an international research and teaching hub, housed at the University of Alberta, for the bourgeoning sub-field of Indigenous STS. Our mission is two-fold: 1) To build Indigenous scientific literacy by training graduate students, postdoctoral, and community fellows to grapple expertly with techno-scientific projects and topics that affect their territories, peoples, economies, and institutions; and 2) To produce research and public intellectual outputs with the goal to inform national, global, and Indigenous thought and policymaking related to science and technology. Indigenous STS is committed to building and supporting techno-scientific projects and ways of thinking that promote Indigenous self-determination.

When 'Where Are You From?' Takes You Someplace Unexpected

THE CODE SWITCH PODCAST

Imagine finding out one day that many of the stories that you told about yourself weren’t really true. The way you understood your family history, the way you explained your personality (“I’m Italian, of course I talk loud!”), the way you talked about your hair — what if all of it was just, well, stories?

Or maybe even stranger: What if you found out that you had a whole hidden history that you’d never known about? That generations of your family had lived through events that you had no idea you were connected to?

Would that change who you are?
