Indigenous Research Design

Transnational Perspectives in Practice

By Elizabeth Sumida Huaman, Nathan D. Martin


Indigenous Research Design is an interdisciplinary text that explores how researchers reimagine research paradigms, frameworks, designs, and methods. Building upon the theories and research teachings presented by Indigenous Peoples in Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Research Methodologies, editors Elizabeth Sumida Huaman and Nathan D. Martin present practical formations and applications of Indigenous research for a variety of community, student, professional, and educational projects.

With contributions from a broad selection of Indigenous scholars across disciplines and continents, this collection shares research stories and innovations directly linked to Indigenous Peoples’ lived experiences. The contributors ask researchers to rethink how their work is gathered, interpreted, and presented while providing guidance for how Indigenous knowledges and critiques inform each element and stage of the research process. This volume aims to inspire new and Indigenous-led ways of thoughtfully developing research questions, conceptualizing qualitative research paradigms, and collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data.

Equipped with chapter learning objectives, critical reflection questions, chapter glossaries, and featuring a foreword written by Manulani Aluli Meyer, this engaging text is a vital addition to the field of research methods and essential reading for any aspiring and established researchers, including university and college students who encounter qualitative and mixed-methods research in their respective disciplines.


  • centres Indigenous experiences and knowledges in rethinking research methodologies and practices along with offering guidance for recognizing and practicing Indigenous worldviews and epistemologies throughout each stage of the research process
  • a practical complementary text to the theoretical Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Research Methodologies
