This course will provide a basis in the theory and practice of Aboriginal community research. While it is not intended to provide intensive training in order to carry out research, students will be provided with an overview of a variety of research methodologies and methods, as well as an introduction to planning a research study. The history of research on, for, and with Aboriginal peoples will be examined, as will the ethical issues involved when working with Aboriginal communities. By the end of the course, students will be able to articulate what makes up an Indigenous research paradigm. 3
