Recognizing Resilience and Understanding Need

RRUN is a research partnership of a group of First Nations communities in Saskatchewan, academic researchers, and health and social service professionals. The aim of the project is to improve family outcomes by developing knowledge through information gathering and knowledge sharing practices that honor the stories and experiences of the children, families and communities involved.

There are significant gaps in our collective understanding of what families living with childhood disability are going through and especially First Nations families living on-reserve. This project will try to fill some of these gaps by talking to families, professionals, and Elders in five diverse First Nations communities in Saskatchewan – Wahpeton Dakota Nation, Beardy’s & Okemasis Cree Nation, Piapot Cree Nation, Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation, and Wood Mountain Lakota Nation.

This project is grounded in Indigenous research principles and follows OCAP®, which asserts that First Nations alone have control over data collection processes in their communities, and that they own and control how this information can be stored, interpreted, used, or shared.
