A couple of weeks ago I read an excellent article, Research and Indigenous Librarianship in Canada, and I'd like to recommend it to you. I think it's more about understanding the implications of undergoing research with or about Indigenous Peoples than it is about doing so in a library setting, but that's great, because it makes it relevant to all academics, IMHO.
The author, Deborah Lee, does a good job of explaining how Indigenous Peoples have been impacted by traditional academic research methods in the past, and how their expectations for sharing research results, and their reasons for participating in research, may be significantly different than what we're used to in the academy. The single biggest takeaway for me was how important it is for a researcher to seriously consider why they're conducting research on or with Indigenous Peoples. If you're just gunning for publication or tenure, you should look for another subject.
And because I'm always looking for a tech angle, I learned about a new-to-me open source Content Management System called Mukurtu, which is designed to hold information in a way that is considerate of the needs of Indigenous Peoples. Bet you also didn't consider there was even a need for such a thing!
Do read the article - I guarantee you'll learn something from it.
