  • 1201 Accesses

Part of the Springer Protocols Handbooks book series (SPH)

Abstract

In this chapter, we consider a number of characteristics inherent to interacting and working with indigenous populations. Certain aspects of life in an indigenous village may present difficulties and require a researcher to adapt his or her work objectives to fit the reality of the environment. Our aim in this chapter is to present research strategies based on data, previous reports, and field experiences that we consider useful for professionals who work with indigenous populations.
