Looking for Urban Aboriginal People in Ottawa for Research on Culture, Identity, Community and Place

Looking for Urban Aboriginal Adults (18+) to Participate in Research on Culture, Identity, Community, and Place in Ottawa

Title of Research Project:            Community is Where I Find It: Place-Making, Culture, and Identity Among Urban Aboriginal People in Ottawa, Ontario

I am looking for research participants:

·         People who self-identify as Aboriginal (First Nations Status or non-Status Indian, Metis, Inuit, or mixed Aboriginal heritage)

·         Aboriginal adults 18+, male and female

·         Must reside in Ottawa

 Research participants will participate in a 60 to 120 minute video or audio recorded interview.  Video recorded interviews will not provide anonymity but audio recorded interviews will be anonymous. The topic of the interview will be on your thoughts and experiences of urban Aboriginal culture and identity as a resident of Ottawa, Ontario. One of the main purposes of the research is to produce a short film on urban Aboriginal culture and identity in Ottawa, Ontario and to show the vibrancy of urban Aboriginal life.

A gift/honourarium will be provided to participants with a value of approximately $10. As transportation and child care can be barriers to participation I can provide bus tickets as well as offer to pay for childcare costs at the standard hourly rate for parents with children who do not have access to childcare. 

If you are interested in participating or would like any more information please feel free to contact me, Cheryl Matthew at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Carleton University, B753 Loeb Building, Phone: (613) 899-3530 or by email cmatthew@connect.carleton.ca
