Abstract

In order to advance the place of Indigenous Knowledges, ontologies and methodologies in academia, Indigenous higher degree by research students should be provided with training programs that encompass both Western research epistemologies and protocols and global and national Indigenous research perspectives and methodologies. The challenge for the Western schooled providers of this training is not only to understand and support the broader elements of the Indigenous research agenda but to embrace methodologies and theoretical perspectives that reflect Indigenous ontologies and cultural values. This paper describes how a both-ways approach to the provision of research training at Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education attempts to meet these challenges and goals.
