Posted on Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Congratulations to Pierrot Ross-Tremblay, professor of the Institute of Indigenous Research and Studies (IIRS) and now holder of the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Intellectual Traditions and Self-Determination.

Professor Pierrot Ross-Tremblay (Innu Essipit) researches how to preserve and make accessible the richness of Indigenous stories, testimonies and interpretations, and especially those of Elders. His research supports First Peoples’ self-determination in research so that they can independently restore their cultural memories and gain control of their historical narratives to better access the legal and intellectual traditions that these memories convey.
