Be mindful when using information collected from Indigenous Peoples. While current research practices regarding Indigenous Peoples are improving in Canada, historic works seldom respect Indigenous Intellectual Property. APA citation cautions researchers to evaluate published works to ensure that information is both accurate and appropriate to use prior to citing. Indigenous Knowledge comes with a variety of Cultural Protocols which may limit who can share information, when it can be shared, and with whom it may be shared. Because cross-cultural information exchanges increase the likely hood of misrepresentation, it is vital to confirm that your work upholds the integrity of Indigenous perspectives.
