The Queens’ Indigenous Identity Final Report has been released. First Peoples Group in Ottawa were contracted to do the report in light of community concerns around Indigenous identity of Queens faculty and staff sparked by a document titled “Investigation into false claims to Indigenous identity at Queen’s University” The report presents seven recommendations for hiring policies and procedures based on Grandfather teachings including: Love, Truth, Humility, Respect, Courage, Wisdom and Honesty. 

Chancellor Murray Sinclair says, this is one step of many to rectify the impacts caused by past processes and systems. Queen’s University along with all universities and colleges across Turtle Island must now take significant steps to demonstrate their commitment to reconciliation. 

In response to the report, Queen’s will establish an Indigenous Oversight Council. Principal Patrick Deane says the council will advise the university on matters of Indigenous representation and citizenship.

The full report is available on the Queens University website. I will share my conversation with Associate Vice-Principal of Indigenous Initiatives & Reconciliation Janice Hill this afternoon at 4:30 on the Scoop.
