Presented in this work is an adapted quantitative research paradigm for use in the field of education, specifically designed for work with Indigenous/marginalized populations coined "Diachronic Research Methodology" (DRM). The model is grounded in a post-positivist, decolonization-model, that is embedded in feminist and critical race theory. DRM is presented as a counter-approach to the traditional empiricist, research methods; a process which, historically, has allowed for a limited and biased understanding of Indigenous/marginalized populations. DRM challenges Western epistemologies and worldviews which have promoted the idea of one-grand-narrative for all humans, a view argued as beyond problematic and unethical, particularly for Indigenous and marginalized populations. The DRM framework is comprised of three components: a quantitative analysis as a means to study educational phenomenon; a post-colonial historical overview of the participant group; and, a collaborative recourse strategy that is centered on an action plan/third-party/grant initiative that meets the needs of the community as directly related to the collaborative.
