Abstract: EvalIndigenous began in November 2015 as a global network of Eval-Partners. This origin story of EvalIndigenous is shared to describe some of the work being carried out today by Indigenous evaluators in the Global North and South. EvalIndigenous is rooted in tribal critical and Indigenous theories and methods, as well as the legal and political distinctions of Indigenous peoples and Tribal/First Nations. EvalIndigenous shares how evaluation is done “by us and for us.” Th e article concludes by highlighting key strategies that the fi eld of evaluation can consider in the future when working with Indigenous populations and sovereign Tribal/First Nations governments and communities.
