Résumé (en anglais):
The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) is working with participatory models for community-based curriculum development in the area of First Nations Studies. Drawing on that experience, this paper will present our model and look at the larger context of community participation in academic work. We will discuss how UNBC is applying the model to develop, with First Nations collaboration, innovative curriculum in archaeology and other areas. We will discuss ways the university can adapt and serve the needs of communities, and examine the collaboration that is developing between community and institution in organizing our archaeological field school.
