Indigenous Research

Theories, Practices, and Relationships

By Deborah McGregor, Jean-Paul Restoule, Rochelle Johnston

Description

Indigenous research is an important and burgeoning field of study. With the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call for the Indigenization of higher education and growing interest within academic institutions, scholars are exploring research methodologies that are centred in or emerge from Indigenous worldviews, epistemologies, and ontology. This edited collection moves beyond asking what Indigenous research is and examines how Indigenous approaches to research are carried out in practice.

Contributors share their personal experiences of conducting Indigenous research within the academy in collaboration with their communities and with guidance from Elders and other traditional knowledge keepers. Their stories are linked to current discussions and debates, and their unique journeys reflect the diversity of Indigenous languages, knowledges, and approaches to inquiry.

Indigenous Research is an essential read for students in Indigenous studies programs, as well as for those studying research methodologies in education, sociology, anthropology, and history.

FEATURES:

  • explores the foundations of Indigenous research methods
  • offers key theoretical, ethical, and methodological questions at the beginning of each chapter
  • brings together contributions from seasoned and emerging scholars, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, who research in diverse contexts
