Tools Overview

“Community protocols are an accessible tool for equalizing, or even reversing, historically one-sided control of research processes and outcomes. In abiding by them, researchers have an obligation to examine how and where their work intersects with the historical and contemporary concerns, self-defined needs, and political agendas of Indigenous communities to consider if their objectives are well matched with those of the community”.

—(Kelly Bannister, 2000).
