Article: Doing Indigenous community-university research partnerships: A cautionary tale

Absolon, K., & Dion, S. (2017). Doing Indigenous community-university research partnerships: A cautionary tale. Engaged Scholar Journal: Community-Engaged Research, Teaching, and Learning, 3(2), 81-98. 


With the intention of generating critical discussion, in this paper the authors examine the complexities of doing decolonizing research within colonial institutions. Drawing on their experiences as co-investigators on a large scale partnership grant involving Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners doing community-based research in Indigenous communities, they tell a cautionary tale about confronting and working through the challenges. Specifically addressing communication, decision-making, internalized colonialism and research relationships, the authors conclude that while these kinds of partnership grants involve struggle, in the end the effort is necessary.
