Calling All Graduate Students! Masters and doctoral students using Indigenous research methods in their work can join an online discussion group for mutual support. It’s run by American Indigenous Research Association membersĀ  working on their Ph.Ds. This is a particularly valuable opportunity for students working in research universities where the awareness of Indigenous issues is fairly low, or for students who have good faculty mentoring but few other Indigenous grad students to compare experiences and feelings with. The Co-Heart doctoral group of the University of Idaho showed us all (at the 2013 Conference) how important mutual encouragement, support, and assistance can be. Peer group support really can help you get past the most difficult steps in completing your degree.
