Indeed, critical analysis is actually about unveiling the pretense of ‘objectivity,’ about discovering how emotional, personal, spiritual, or community-based agendas matter for how we think about the world. IR as a discipline needs to shatter some of the methodological and epistemological demands of objectivity in order to reflect much more actively upon the possibilities and pitfalls of ethnographic, self-reflexive, and participatory research.

Yet, undergirding them all to some degree is indigeneity.
