We are proud to share NUICC’s first journal publication, Stories Have Always Been Our Governance
Stories Have Always Been Our Governance is produced by NUICC’s Urban Indigenous Knowledge Mobilization Hub and is about sharing stories between coalitions and lifting up work being done within urban Indigenous communities across Canada.
Our first issue, Issue 1.0, focuses on the role of Indigenous stories in policy development, and showcases more than 12 articles and art pieces by and for urban Indigenous people in both English and French. In sharing these stories, the journal works to focus, amplify and disseminate the emergent knowledge, practices and futures for urban Indigenous people. In respect to providing resources to coalitions and local urban Indigenous community members and leaders, this issue features a 20-page bilingual toolkit for Bringing Indigenous Stories/‘Research’ into Policy (pg. 44).
As a means of introducing coalitions across Canada, we’ve included a map and contact directory, as well as a thorough and diverse scan of the victories, challenges, and needs of urban Indigenous coalitions and their communities.
