Indigenous Evaluation 101 Guidebook

Existing training and resources on evaluation are widely available, but guidance on how to conduct evaluation that honors the culture and strengths of Indigenous communities is often missing. This Guide was developed to help the State of Minnesota, Indigenous organizations, and others to recognize the steps and considerations necessary to design and implement an evaluation that considers Indigenous ways of knowing. The Guide contains concrete tips and tools, and includes links to other resources. This Guide is not meant to be the only resource a reader would need to conduct an Indigenous evaluation, but rather to be a starting point for thinking about how to ensure evaluations are appropriately measuring the successes of Indigenous projects and programs.
