Indigenous ethical principles • Wilson & Wilson (2013, 343) • Communality of knowledge: knowledge does not belong to any individual, but to all • Relational accountability: every relationship should be founded on mutual accountability • Reciprocity: we should give back to our communities and to each other • Holism: we should acknowledge and attend to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of being and experience
  4. 4. Indigenous ethical principles • “A postcolonial indigenous ethical theory recognizes power sharing within diversity as an integral part of fairness and social justice and as a means to challenge power structures in order to transform lives.” (Chilisa 2012:174-5)
  5. 5. Indigenous ethical principles • The ‘Four R’s’ (Chilisa 2012:22) • 1. Relational accountability: all parts of the research process are related; the researcher is accountable to all relations • 2. Respectful representation: the researcher needs to listen, pay attention, acknowledge, and create space for the voices and knowledge systems of participants and others
  6. 6. Indigenous ethical principles • 3. Reciprocal appropriation: acknowledge research as appropriation and ensure that benefits accrue to participants and communities as well as researchers • 4. Rights and regulations: ethical protocols should give colonized and marginalized peoples ownership of the research process and the knowledge produced Next: ethical practice
