Potts & Brown (2005). Becoming an Anti-Oppressive Researcher.

“Therefore, anti-oppressive research is not a process to discover knowledge, but a political process to co-create and rediscover knowledge.

Wilson (2008). The Elements of an Indigenous Research Paradigm. (Research is ceremony: Indigenous research methods.)

The axiology and methodology are based upon maintaining accountability to these relationships.” (p 70-71)
