This chapter addresses the issues and difficulties in doing research on ethnic minorities in a sensitive and respectful manner that will ultimately benefit the ethnic community. It defines indigenist community-based participatory research and decolonizing partnership strategies. It uses examples from Indian Country in how to form such research. The principles of such research include recognizing the community as a unit, building on the strengths of the community, facilitating community capacity building, striking a balance between research and action, emphasizing local relevance and contexts, and generating systems growth.

Keywords:   ethnic, minorities, indigenist, participatory research, decolonizing, ethnic community
