Indigenous Evaluation (also known as Aboriginal Evaluation) is an evaluation process that meets the needs and priorities of Indigenous Peoples. Honouring Reconciliation in Evaluation takes the advantages of Indigenous evaluation or Aboriginal evaluation systems and makes the ideal ultimate way of doing an evaluation. Indigenous evaluation or Aboriginal evaluation can be used in almost all situations that require an evaluation. It allows for more input from the community than traditional western evaluation.
At Johnston Research, we’ve developed over 200 Indigenous evaluation frameworks. Through this process, we have learned that evaluators should not lay claim to the development of Indigenous evaluation frameworks. The way Indigenous evaluation frameworks are undertaken needs to change.
