"How would you explain Indigenous research methodology?

It is rooted in reciprocity, and respect, and relationality — the three Rs as we call them. So when we're approaching research, we're working respectfully on the land and we're working in reciprocity."

British Author Marie Corelli died 100 years ago.

Her first novel, "A Romance of Two Worlds" (1886), introduced themes that would recur in her later work—spiritualism, the occult, & the conflict between good & evil. The novel was a success & set the stage for her career as a bestselling author. Some of her most famous works include: "The Sorrows of Satan", "The Master-Christian" and "The Secret Power".
