This is part one of a three-part webinar intended to provide an initial introduction to the Indigenous Evaluation Framework developed by Dr. Joan LaFrance in collaboration with the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) which includes a synthesized approach with both Indigenous ways of knowing and Western evaluation practice.
Dr. LaFrance will describe the development of the framework, provide definitions of key constructs and processes, and discuss examples of how to best apply the framework within Indigenous communities, highlighting some of her work with Indigenous health and education work worldwide. The purpose is to offer Indigenous people, faculty, staff, and students with an opportunity to learn about an Indigenous-centered approach from the expert in Indigenous Evaluation, and to hold a space for meaningful discussion to learn how this approach may be used in a variety of settings and contexts.
This series is a collaboration between Seven Directions, Center for Indigenous Public Health, the University of Washington Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies, and Mekinak Consulting.
