Revealing Indigenous History Through Oral Interviews

Dr. Sarah Nickel presents at the 2016 Canada’s History Forum.

Hosted by Canada’s History Society

Posted November 27, 2016

In this presentation, Dr. Nickel asks: How can we "do" Indigenous history without marginalizing the very voices we're trying to uncover? Dr. Nickel shares some of the challenges she has faced using oral history interviews for her research on 20th century Indigenous political work in British Columbia.

This presentation by Dr. Sarah Nickel is part of the “Researching and Revealing Indigenous History” Panel at the 9th Canada’s History Forum, Engaging Authentic Indigenous Histories that was held on November 28, 2016 in Ottawa. This event was organized by Canada’s National History Society and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. We are grateful to the RBC Foundation for their financial support.
