Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples

Smith, Linda Tuhiwai. Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples. Zed books, 1999.

Decolonizing Methodologies: this book focuses on imperialism and research and how imperialism is embedded in bodies of knowledge especially in relation to indigenous people. Its main argument is that a decolonization of research methods will help regain control over indigenous ways of knowing and being. Ways in which research can be used for social justice are also discussed in the book. Topics such as Indigenous activism and Indigenous research are also addressed with case studies as examples.
