  2. Discuss how critical feminist frameworks are used as analytical lenses to better understand the complexity of the human experience and social inequality as well as promote Indigenous sovereignty by centering the voices of individuals and communities who have historically been silenced.
  3. Better understand how decolonizing research methodologies align with an anti-oppressive research agenda through the partnerships and collaboration with tribal communities who are the experts about the needs of their respective communities.
