As a Woman in science I witnessed and experienced a patriarchal system supported by a shame-based culture. My undergraduate experience as a biology student in Saskatchewan demonstrated a need for emancipatory practice within science education and the views entrenched therein. With a goal of furthering my personal understanding regarding this scholarly/erudite niche, I interviewed nine Women regarding their experiences of science in Saskatchewan. Using an autoethnographic approach, I explored my responses to their individual stories, revisiting my own path to and through biology and academia with the goal of finding a “both and” approach embracing of Indigenous ways of coming to knowing and feminist methodologies while employing an ethic of care. Through this process I have come to believe that we need a unifying and equitable way forward that meets people where they are; Indigenous and feminist methodolgies will provide that path.
