MISSION: Indigenous Peoples in Evaluation is a topical interest group (TIG) of the American Evaluation Association, an international professional association of evaluators devoted to the application and exploration of program evaluation, personnel evaluation, technology, and other forms of evaluation.
The Indigenous Peoples in Evaluation TIG strives to achieve the following goals to improve evaluation practices and methods:
- Developing and disseminating knowledge that helps assure that evaluations in which indigenous people are among the major stakeholders are culturally responsive and respectful of their interests and rights.
- Creating a venue for indigenous evaluators and others working in indigenous contexts to participate in discourse about evaluation models and methods that support indigenous values, practices, and ways of knowing.
- Mentoring emerging evaluators interested in evaluation in various indigenous contexts.
