In this seventh installment of “More Than Meets the IRB,” Molly Tovar (PhD, Director of the Kathryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies) and Peter Coser, Jr. (MHR), talk with us about ethical and cultural issues related to American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) research. Our guests for this podcast have extensive background in AIAN research and share with us their experiences in the field.

This installment brings to life the important research ethical issues made more visible by recent events, such as the Havasupai Tribe case.
