Abstract [en]

Ethnographic fieldwork is common in many fields of research. When I got accepted for doctoral studies, I had worked on my idea for many years. I thought I knew what to expect from my field studies with First Nations children in British Columbia, Canada, diagnosed with autism, but ultimately, I had to change my plans several times during the research project. Unexpected challenges, but also fantastic opportunities, were offered and dealing with them was sometimes confusing, frightening and discouraging. Ethical and methodological issues were constantly present. The aim of this text is to give a personal account of my experiences to give aspiring ethnographers an idea of what doing research with Indigenous peoples might entail.
