Methodology Is Content: Indigenous Approaches to Research and Knowledge

There has been extensive work in the space of Indigenous epistemological approaches to research. Because Australian Indigenous peoples have been researched significantly, there are guidelines around the ethical and cultural conduct of this type of research. Via investigating the Academy's approach to research in general, we can illuminate the vast differences between empirical approaches to research from the "West" compared to knowledge acquisition and sharing through "relationality" from an Indigenous perspective. This paper investigates this dichotomy and brings into question the premise of power and value attributed to each approach, arguing that this is still not an equal ascription. This paper posits a reconfiguration of approaches to research as a way of extending on research in general, and provides a platform of how Indigenous knowledges can extend on and reconfigure, in a positive way, approaches to research.
