Secwépemc Nation Research Ethics Guidelines
When TRU and all other universities honour this document, then it is a statement of acknowledgement that Secwépemc knowledge is valid and equal in all aspects to Western ways of knowing and educational philosophies. This is respectful acknowledgement and honour to the Secwépemc Nation, the ancestral peoples who have lived here for thousands of years. By endorsing this document, we are looking at the respect for our Elders, Knowledge Keepers and the Secwépemc Nation. It brings in a relationship, a partnership, so that all people are together in a clear understanding that we are all called to map the way for those yet to be born.
