Indigenous Statistics: A Quantitative Research Methodology

Booktopia

Summary

In the first book ever published on Aboriginal quantitative methodologies,

Maggie Walter and Chris Andersen open up a major new approach to research across the disciplines and applied fields. While qualitative methods have been rigorously critiqued and reformulated, the population statistics relied on by virtually all research on Aboriginal peoples continue to be taken for granted as straightforward, transparent numbers.

Indigenous Statistics dismantles that persistent positivism with a forceful critique, then fills the void with a new paradigm for Aboriginal quantitative methods, using concrete examples of research projects from First World indigenous peoples in the United States, Australia, and Canada.

Concise and accessible, it is an ideal supplementary text as well as a core component of the methodological toolkit for anyone conducting Aboriginal research or using indigenous population statistics.
