Linda Tuhiwai Smith, author of the highly influential book Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples, was to have been the 2017 keynote speaker, but she has had to cancel due to circumstances beyond her control. However, she has graciously rescheduled to be the keynote speaker for the 2018 AIRA meeting!
