Indigenous Methodologies is the second edition of the groundbreaking text in the field of Indigenous research by Margaret Kovach, of Nêhiyaw and Saulteaux ancestry from Treaty Four, Saskatchewan. Since its original publication in 2009, the study of Indigenous methodologies has grown exponentially. This book has also been adopted in university courses around the world and provides a conceptual and methodological framework for conducting Indigenous methodologies alongside 'first wave' voices articulating Indigenous scholarship in academic contexts such as Deloria, Hampton, and Ortiz and the contemporary work of Absolon, Chilisa, Debassige, Kovach, Restoule et al, L.T. Smith, Wilson, and Windchief & San Pedro. It is also a useful entry point to learn more broadly about Indigenous and decolonizing methodologies and research. The second edition incorporates new literature along with other substantial updates: a fulsome discussion of Indigenous theory and analysis including qualitative inquiry questioning, new chapters on community partnership and capacity building, an added focus on oracy and other forms of knowledge dissemination, and a renewed call to decolonize the academy. The second edition also includes discussion questions as a way to enhance classroom interaction with the text. In a field that continues to grow and evolve, and as universities and researchers strive to learn about, and apply Indigenous-informed research, this important new edition introduces readers to the principles and practices of Indigenous methodologies. Indigenous methodologies Opens the Circle and over four parts: situating, finding, applying, and strongly concluding Indigenous Methodologies, closes the Circle. Highly recommended.
