Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples by Linda Tuhiwai Smith

In Decolonizing Methodologies, an indigenous researcher issues a clarion call for the decolonization of research methods. Exploring the broad range of issues which have confronted, and continue to confront, indigenous peoples, in their encounters with western knowledge, this book sets a standard for truly emancipatory research. It brilliantly demonstrates that ‘when indigenous peoples become the researchers and not merely the researched, the activity of research is transformed.’
