Reliability, Validity, and Authenticity in American Indian and Alaska Native Research. ERIC Digest
The constructs used to evaluate research quality--valid, objective, reliable, generalizable, randomized, accurate, authentic--are not value-free. They all require human judgment, which is affected inevitably by cultural norms and values. In the case of research involving American Indians and Alaska Natives, assessments of research quality must be based both on Western notions of scientific quality and on separate criteria prescribed in the interests of sovereignty.
