CES BC Webinar: Learning to "see with two eyes": Insights from applying culturally-responsive evaluation strategies to an Indigenous health initiative
This presentation will introduce an innovative framework for culturally-responsive evaluation within Indigenous contexts and examine how the framework has been applied in a real-world evaluation. I begin with a brief overview of Chris Macklin's use of Two-Eyed Seeing as a guiding principle to integrate Indigenous forms of expertise and knowledge into the CDC Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health. Subsequently, I share insights about my experience applying the adapted framework to conduct an evaluation of a major Indigenous health initiative at Interior Health. In the process of re-learning to “see with two eyes” – one on Western biomedical theories/methodologies and another on Indigenous ways of knowing and conceptualizations of wellness – I illustrate how meaningfully practicing cultural responsiveness can enhance the evaluation process as a whole.
