"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.

Educational Resources for Research Participants
Explaining research to prospective research participants can be challenging. One year ago, OHRP launched its public outreach website, About Research Participation, www.hhs.gov/about-research-participation, to help potential volunteers better understand research and make informed decisions. Since then, we’ve received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the research and patient communities, and continue to hear about new and creative ways these materials are being used to educate prospective volunteers and improve the informed consent process.
Available resources include short videos about participating in research, and a list of questions for prospective participants to consider. All of the resources, including the videos, are available in English and Spanish. And because OHRP’s educational materials are free to the public, you can use any and all of them as much as you’d like! If you have any questions or would like source files for off-line use, email the education division at: OHRP-Edu@hhs.gov. If you’ve been using the About Research Participation resources in your institution, we’d love to hear from you!
Please consider sharing this information with your colleagues and other human research protection professionals and programs!
