Research Space/Lab
Although created as a research lab, there is nothing lab-like about Mamawipawin.  Located on the fourth floor of the Isbister Building, the space consists of three elements: a circular, multi-functional community research space; a connected research and training room and a portable lab (including mobile equipment for use in the community). The focal point of Mamawipawin is a community research space which reflects and respects Indigenous peoples, and their cultural, political and intellectual traditions in both its design and functionality.  As such, Mamawipawin reflects critical Indigenous teachings about community, individuality, research and life which allows knowledge to be shared and partnerships to develop in a manner that respects Indigenous protocols and ceremonies.
