The Department of Indigenous Studies is part of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at SFU. We partner with Indigenous and other communities and individuals to build dynamic relationships that restore and revitalize traditional knowledges, ancient and modern aesthetics, and literatures.
As a community of teachers and learners, we are committed to connecting with you, our students, and honouring Indigenous perspectives through activist research, creative work, and community engagement. Indigenous Studies will give you a progressive, comprehensive learning experience rooted in both traditional and contemporary Indigenous logic, practice and theory.
We are engaging and interdisciplinary! Indigenous Studies gives you experience in a wide range of academic subjects including archaeology, history, gender, sexuality, and women's studies, linguistics, cultural resource management, sociology, anthropology, fine arts, criminology, English and more.
