Indigenous Methodologies: Characteristics, Conversations, and Contexts
What are Indigenous research methodologies, and how do they unfold? Indigenous methodologies flow from tribal knowledge, and while they are allied with several western qualitative approaches, they remain distinct. These are the focal considerations of Margaret Kovach's study, which offers guidance to those conducting research in the academy using Indigenous methodologies.

This book is great for those writing grant, fellowship, and dissertation proposals. It clarifies the difference between Indigenous methodologies and Indigenous methods. With proposals in mind (especially the methods and methodologies sections), it offers clarifications and definitions of some Indigenous methods that can be referenced. These Indigenous methods and methodologies can then be contextualized via our specific tribal methods and methodologies.

This is an amazing piece of literature for folks exploring Indigenity within academia or pursuing research that aims to be inclusive and accessible within Canadian culture. I truly appreciated the interwoven stories and reflections and the advice of the author on how to share a similar narrative style within academic work. I consider this to be a tool of utmost value for folks pursuing research, especially within the realms of experiences and realities of Indigenous peoples.
Clearly explained, with plenty of personal anecdotes and stories to put the material into context, Kovach provides a comprehensive introduction to Indigenous Methodologies, starting from the beginning with story, and ending with decolonizing the academy. Kovach frames the discussion in such a way, that the logical next step after reading is to consider how to incorporate decolonizing tribal methodologies in an Indigenous research context.
