New Resource: “Walk Softly And Listen Carefully, Building Research Relationships With Tribal Communities”

The National Congress of American Indians Policy Research Center and Montana State University’s Center for Native Health Partnerships have published a new resource, Walk Softly and Listen Carefully: Building Research Relationships with Tribal Communities. A PDF version of the document is available for downloading<http://cnhp.montana.edu/WalkSoftly.htm>. This new resource was developed with insights from those involved with tribal research in Montana and elsewhere.

Increasingly, tribal leaders acknowledge that research is a key tool of tribal sovereignty in providing data and information to guide community planning, cross-community coordination, and program and policy development. Efforts to address longstanding issues, such as health disparities for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), have increasingly used partnership research approaches. This document seeks to strengthen these partnerships by providing insight about how culture, sovereignty, and experience matter in research with Native communities.
