Abstract [en]

Conducting research within Indigenous contexts requires the researcher to consider many issues. Engaging in respectful relationships and dissemination of results are two important aspects in all research. The history of colonialism and research on Indigenous peoples, however, makes these factors especially important within Indigenous contexts. In this poster presentation, I aim to discuss the use of mind maps to analyze interview transcripts, validate transcript interpretations together with participants and informants, and disseminate research results. My ongoing PhD project is on the meaning of music for First Nations children in British Columbia, Canada, diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Visual methods, such as mind maps, are beneficial to individuals with autism. Furthermore, mind maps provide a mutual point of focus for discussion and allow the opportunity to add new information, thus making progress or change visible and obvious. This is useful in interaction with all participants and informants.
