"Indigenous people and researchers: building collaborative partnerships and the importance of responsibilities, ethics, and values of research on the Navajo Nation"

The mission of the Navajo Nation Research Program is to support research that promotes and enhances the interests and the visions of the Navajo people: to encourage a mutual and beneficial partnership between the Navajo people and researchers; and to create an interface where different cultures, lifestyles, disciplines, and ideologies can come together in a way that improves, promotes, and strengthens the health of the Navajo people.

The Navajo Nation Human Research Review Board (NNHRB) was developed in March 1996 to guarantee ethical research for the Diné people.
