Elders & Respectful Research

Watch the video Indigenous Information Literacy: Elders & Respectful Research (6:47).

This video will introduce you to respectfully approaching Elders through the research process.

Be sure to approach Elders or Knowledge Keepers respectfully, and follow all the appropriate guidelines for conducting research with humans.
