Abstract

The preparation for an adult Indigenous language learning journey is explored in this article by blending autoethnographic methodology with Indigenous research methods. Themes such as spiritual preparation, truth in telling one's families stories, the role of integrity, and the exposure experienced through authoethography are discussed. The author concludes by acknowledging the emergence of new Indigenous research paradigms and their potential for knowledge creation
