Assembly of First Nations, 2007.
The original research focus of OCAP was to provide a framework related to data ownership, collection, analysis and dissemination for the RHS, as well as to provide a political response to counteract the harm done to First Nations by research that failed to respect the importance of understanding the First Nations way of knowing while treating First Nations as specimens rather than people with specific human rights.

Focuses on the question of "How" indigenous research methodologies (IRMs) can be used and taught across Indigenous studies and education. In this collection, Indigenous scholars address the importance of IRMs in their own scholarship, while focusing conversations on the application with others. Each chapter is co-authored to model methods rooted in the sharing of stories to strengthen relationships, such as yarning, storywork, and others. The chapters offer a wealth of specific examples, as told by researchers about their research methods in conversation with other scholars, teachers, and community members

USAI Research Framework takes its acronym from the four principles of ethics that guide it: Utility, Self-Voicing, Access, and Interrelationality. Our work is faithful to Indigenous identity, harmoniously inscribed within the four directions of the medicine wheel. Our approach to research is practical, fully recognizing communities as authors of the knowledge that any community-driven inquiry generates. USAI stresses the inherent validity of Indigenous [or traditional] knowledge and positions it within all relationships, fully acknowledging its historical and political context.
