Indigenous Methodologies is a groundbreaking text in the field of Indigenous research.

The second edition incorporates new literature along with other substantial updates, including a fulsome discussion of Indigenous theory and analysis, 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.
