Excellent, thorough, foundational
This is a great start for anyone wanting to understand Indigenous research methodologies and how they differ from Euro-Western methodologies. Surprisingly - and shamefully - few Euro-Western people have any idea about the existence of Indigenous research methodologies, let alone that they pre-date Euro-Western methodologies by millennia. These are not methodologies that Euro-Western researchers can adopt, as they are context-dependent; they are methodologies that we can learn from by reflecting on their shape and purpose. These are clearly explained by the author, who also outlines differences between different Indigenous methodologies. She includes helpful exercises to assist with reflection. The book may also be useful for Indigenous learners, perhaps particularly novice researchers, though I will leave it to Indigenous reviewers to give a fuller perspective here. This should be a course book for all research methods courses in the social sciences and humanities.
