Toward a Shift in Expectations and Values: What We've Learned from Collaborative Action Research in Northern Indigenous Communities
Peterson, Shelly Stagg; Horton, Laura; Restoule, Jean Paul
Canadian Journal of Action Research, v17 n2 p19-32 2016
In this paper we propose that collaborative action research values, goals and practices have much in common with guiding principles for conducting research with educators and community members in First Nation, Inuit and Metis communities, as outlined in the Task Force on Aboriginal Languages and Cultures on Aboriginal Languages and Cultures' (2005) document. We draw on experiences in the Northern Oral Language and Writing through Play Partnership project to make our case, and conclude by identifying needed shifts in expectations and values within the broader academic community for conducting educational research in Indigenous communities.
