Special Reports

The Yellowhead Institute accepts submissions and pitches for different publication formats. 

The Yellowhead Papers are policy briefs that are sharp, topical, and critical interventions into the fields of policy, legislation, law, governance and justice concerning First Nations peoples. They are written in the style of op-eds, for a broad audience, and range in length from 800-1,000 words. We publish the Papers on an ongoing basis and welcome distillations of research, community perspectives, or responses to current political contexts.
We also publish longer-form Yellowhead Reports. These reports take a deeper dive into key questions of governance and settler colonialism concerning Indigenous lives in Canada today. They must be approximately 3,000 words in length. If you are interested in contributing in this format, please submit a proposal or one-page outline of the proposed report, rather than submitting full-length pieces.
We meet bi-monthly to read and assess all incoming proposals and will contact people once publishing decisions have been made. Yellowhead offers an honorarium for all selected submissions.
Please send all submissions to research@yellowheadinstitute.org
