Abstract:

Research on Indigenous and Marginalized Populations: Some Thoughts on Methodology and Social Justice in Political Science Research

The primary geographical focus of this paper is on indigenous people in the Amazon, based on research I have completed for an M.S. thesis. The focus of this paper, while considering some research issues concerning indigenous people within North America, is primarily focused on indigenous peoples in areas such as Brazil and other marginalized people who scholars from the Northern hemisphere and academic sectors of third world host countries might research, in ways that might be more beneficial for indigenous populations.

I am conscience of the fact that I do not come from an indigenous population and, therefore, do not want to set my agendas upon indigenous populations, via a blueprint for the only way research of the indigenous could be done. Instead, I wish to pursue a discussion about how methodology can be used, and occasionally misused, in researching indigenous populations. This is more intended to influence a scholarly community, primarily in the northern hemisphere, than to influence how indigenous peoples should express their struggles and lifestyles to the rest of the world, be it through social science research, advocacy, or other methods.

By methodology, I am especially interested in the debates between qualitative and quantitative methodologies might impact indigenous populations. I am also very interested in exploring how the researchersí position and relations with the indigenous populations might influence the outcome of researcher and might be done in a way that fosters social justice: such methodologies include methods from outside the field of political science, especially within conflict resolution. Of specific attention is the idea of how action research might be used to include indigenous voices in research agendas.
