Implementing Research the Mithaka Way
Over the next fve years, resourcing research will be dependent on a variety of internal and external factors. A ﬂexible process will assess resources against the timeframes of research and Mithaka rights and interests. Sustainable partnerships with researchers, research institutions, governments and private sector will also support building capacities in accessing alternative resources that can beneft Mithaka People.
Mithaka see research as a continuous process that uses knowledge created to feed into new research work, and inﬂuenced by learning from the continuous growth of their Native Title Group and the societies within which they live. By reviewing research outcomes, both during and after projects, Mithaka are able to assess information produced and apply it to future research opportunities. This cyclical process will also provide important contributions to the next strategic phase of research.
To ensure that Traditional Owner’s rights are continuously addressed, this framework exists as a living document that can be developed as Mithaka research work expands and through culturally sensitive governance systems put in place by MAC.
