#FridayFreebie Dr. Bowman’s NEW American Journal of Evaluation (AJE) Article

Looking Backward but Moving Forward: Honoring the Sacred and Asserting the Sovereign in Indigenous Evaluation

Waapalaneexkweew (Nicole R. Bowman-Farrell, Mohican/Lunaape) in the American Journal of Evaluation

Abstract from the article: 

Culturally responsive evaluation and culturally responsive Indigenous evaluation (CRIE) within the broader field of evaluation are not often included in Western literature nor are they known or used by the majority of mainstream evaluators. In order to address this literature and practice gap, this article offers an overview and a broader origin story of CRIE prior to colonial or European contact in the United States and gives an overview of the historical, theoretical, and practical foundations for conducting CRIE in a contemporary evaluation context. Examples of evidence-based models, theories, and resources are provided to connect CRIE to Western evaluation designs and provide concrete strategies for the field of evaluation going forward. The article concludes with systemic and policy evaluation considerations as agencies from federal (i.e., United States), tribal, and international governments and partners from private or nonprofit sectors collaborate to carry out Indigenous evaluations in the future. Collectively this multijurisdictional, culturally responsive, and community-centered
CRIE approach gives evaluators a new way to move forward.

GRANT: Phillips Fund for Native American Research


Phillips Fund for Native American Research

American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia, PA/USA


The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada.


The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants’ fees. Grants are not made for projects in archaeology, ethnography, or psycholinguistics; for the purchase of permanent equipment; or for the preparation of pedagogical materials. The committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the study of cultures and cultural change through time.



The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students for research on master’s theses or doctoral dissertations.


It is assumed that appropriate contacts and arrangements have or will be made with communities for ethical access and community guidance.


The committee sometimes approves two awards to the same person within a five-year period.


Award and Duration

The average award is about $3,000; grants do not exceed $3,500. Grants are given for one year following the date of the award. Grants are taxable income, but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended that grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax advisors. Grant funds are not to be used to pay income taxes.



Recipients of awards are expected to provide the American Philosophical Society Library with a brief formal report and copies of any field notes, films, audio recordings, transcriptions, etc., produced or acquired in the process of the grant-funded research. The materials will be made available to scholars using the Library’s collections.


Deadline: March 1, 2019
