Study suggests Indigenous Peoples often studied

The results of a new study suggest that Indigenous Peoples and communities are often the subjects of studies, surveys and reports.

“Whether it’s universities, government, health agencies of just study hobbyists, Indigenous folks really do go under the microscope an awful lot,” said Milena Porteski, a professor at McMaster University and one of the lead authors of the report.

Conducted over seven years, the exhaustive study looked at thousands of studies targeting Indigenous communities and cost $1.2-million.

A spokesperson for the federal government said they were reviewing the study but hinted that perhaps more study was needed before action was taken.
