"Applying Indigenous Research Methods" focuses on the question of how indigenous research methodologies (IRMs) can be used and taught across indigenous studies and education.

In this collection, indigenous scholars address the importance of IRMs in their own scholarship, while focusing conversations on the application with others. Each chapter is co-authored to model methods rooted in the sharing of stories to strengthen relationships, such as yarning, storywork and others. The chapters offer a wealth of specific examples, as told by researchers about their research methods in conversation with other scholars, teachers, and community members.

"Applying Indigenous Research Methods" is an interdisciplinary showcase of the ways IRMs can enhance scholarship in fields including education, indigenous studies, settler colonial studies, social work, qualitative methodologies and beyond.
