Reciprocity in Indigenous Educational Research: Beyond Compensation, Towards Decolonizing
McGregor, Heather E.

With questions about what it means to conduct educational research in Indigenous contexts based on reciprocal relationships, we review key contributions to the literature from Indigenous and qualitative methodologists. We identify four dimensions of reciprocity, extending the notion of reciprocity as transaction or compensation. To design research that fulfills decolonizing commitments, we find resonance with the conceptualization of reciprocity as a “stance” (Trainor and Bouchard ), rather than being achieved through any particular method.
