Indigenous Research Governance
631U | 1 credit
Tribal research review processes challenge approaches to research that prioritize non-Indigenous methods and values, and allow non-Indigenous researchers to claim expert status over Indigenous Peoples, places, and knowledges. This course explores codes, guidelines, policies, and processes at tribes, other governments, and institutions that govern and steward research with Indigenous Peoples, nations, and communities; the infrastructure, capacity, and capability required at these governments and institutions to support tribal sovereignty; and implications for other entities such as funders and publishers.
At the completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Understand the different types of review processes that steward research with Indigenous nations, communities, lands, and peoples;
- Describe the relationship between research governance and sovereignty;
- Realize how Indigenous research governance may be different from mainstream research review processes.
