NASD402 Indigenous Research Methodologies and Methods

Indigenous Research Methodologies and Methods course focuses on the cultural aspect of Indigenous research methods as they relate to all sciences. 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. To this end, the following questions are emphasized: to whom does the research belong? Whose benefit and interests are at stake? Who is the researcher and what is their relationship to the research community? Who carries out the research? Who controls and disseminates the results?
