Ethics in Native Health Research


Point – Integrity in Native health research requires that investigators retain some degree of academic freedom in the analysis and reporting of their findings.

Counter Point – Accountability in Native health research requires that tribal governments retain sweeping control over the analysis and reporting of research findings from their communities.

Epistemology of Native Health Research

Point – Scientific and traditional explanations depend on largely incompatible ways of knowing, and one should be accorded primacy over the other in Native health research.

Counter Point – Scientific and traditional explanations have always co-existed in indigenous communities, and conflicts between them are rare or trivial in Native health research
