Re-conceptualizing Anishinaabe mino-bimaadiziwin (the Good Life) as research methodology: A spirit centered way in Anishinaabe research
This article contributes to the discussion of approaches for conducting research primarily informed by Indigenous ways of knowing throughout the research process. Anishinaabe mino-bimaadiziwing (the Good Life) is a unifying and transcendent concept that, when activated, contains the past, present, and future of Good and respectful approaches to life, which includes Indigenous research. Through this work I propose a Spirit-centered way in Anishinaabe research under the anner Anishinaabe mino-bimaadiziwin as research methodology. I start by locating myself and situating my personal experiences as the backdrop for my understanding of Anishinaabe worldview.
