Hopefully, I could collect all my necessary data from publicly available sources. Otherwise, I would have to obtain full and informed consent from the Aboriginal groups for data collection. In addition, there are some ethical issues must be considered when working with Aboriginal people. First, I must work with Aboriginal peoples as partners in the research, not subjects. In order to become partners, I must gain their trust. While working together as partners, I must respect their rights and choices. In addition, Aboriginal peoples should be involved in the design, planning, execution, evaluation and review of the research and results.
In order to ensure the ethical issues are properly done, I must assign a longer period of time in my research design for data collection and prepare for unexpected events.
