Future Leaders Workshop: Doing Research with Indigenous Nations
Doing Research with Indigenous Nations
Wed, Feb 24, 12:00-12:45 (last 15 minutes are optional for questions)

Presenters: Karletta Chief, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Extension Specialist, Dept. of Environmental Science, and Historian, UA Native Faculty Association, & Ronald L. Trosper, Professor and Co-PI, Sloan Indigenous Graduate Program, American Indian Studies

After a brief introduction to principles of doing research with Indigenous Nations, the workshop briefly presents two examples of research projects, one with the Navajo Nation, presented by Karletta Chief, and the other with the Missanabie Cree First Nation, Ontario, Canada, presented by Ronald Trosper. Community-based and community-approved research combines features of research, service and outreach. Successful projects involve community members from the start, including determining research questions and assisting with research methods. Because the community’s needs are addressed, outreach is not needed at the completion of a project. Community approval is needed in all Indigenous research involving communities; when the project involves the community in the research, such approval readily occurs. The presentations will describe the benefits to the communities and also the research outcomes.
