Program Description

The certification in Indigenous Research Methods and Methodologies is designed for researchers who wish to conduct research in Indigenous communities.

Included are current theories of Indigenous research, explorations of the purpose of Indigenous research, both historical and contemporary; roles and responsibilities of an Indigenous researcher; oral and recorded traditions and sources of information; and other important issues that face Indigenous researchers, both now and in the future. Students will learn to apply the Indigenous paradigm to their research proposal.
