Canadian and American Indians: An overview of approaches to research

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This paper was prepared as part of the development of a research design for longitudinal monitoring of personal adjustment and social change in the Fort McMurray area and the Cold Lake region. The paper grew out of the study team's recognition that research concepts, methodologies and data collection instruments and procedures which are appropriate in white communities might not be so in Indian and Metis communities. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview and introductory assessment of research approaches in Indian communities, and a context for a more detailed examination of particular approaches which may be appropriate in the various study areas.
