From Good Intentions to Infantilisation: When Non-indigenous People Interfere with Research in an Indigenous Environment
Working with Indigenous peoples is a delicate balance that can shift from “doing with” to “doing for”. This reflection bears witness and provides an opportunity to deconstruct the interference of non-Indigenous people in the approval of research with an Indigenous community. Drawing upon a situation experienced during fieldwork for an anthropology thesis, questions associated with the decolonization of research are addressed.
