In this paper, an Indigenous researcher who has just submitted a doctoral thesis that examines Indigenous success within the context of university study, reflects upon the research methodology she used to embed a sense of 'community', within the research act. She indicates that she had sought to use the research process as a means of providing opportunities for Indigenous respondents to take control of what they wanted to share in terms of their own knowledge and understandings of the issue. She also sought to use a process that would encourage respondents to contextualise their own learning so that, in developing such skills, they could make more informed decisions concerning the outcomes they sought from their own engagement with the academe.
