dc.description.abstract Increasingly, tribal leaders acknowledge that research is a key tool of tribal sovereignty in providing data and information to guide community planning, cross-community coordination, and program and policy development. Efforts to address longstanding issues, such as health disparities for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), have increasingly used partnership research approaches. This document seeks to strengthen these partnerships by providing insight about how culture, sovereignty, and experience matter in research with Native communities....Tribes have used research as a tool of sovereignty to address issues like water quality, early childhood education, cancer, diabetes, and elder care. Yet tribal leaders also continue to express concern about the need to protect cultural information and their communities from dangerous and unethical research practices. There have been historic and present-day ethical violations in the use of data and knowledge collected from AI/AN peoples (e.g., taking and misusing of blood specimens, religious items, traditional practices) and a lack of benefit returned to AI/AN communities who have participated in research....Our goal is for this resource to be a part of a learning process for researchers committed to working with AI/ AN communities as they develop understandings about the cultural, political, and lived realities of Native peoples that must be considered in research.
