Inclusion of the tribe in the basic research methods is crucial. Tiered consent has been shown to be the most successful method for obtaining consent for long-term specimen research among collectivist cultures (Holmes, 2006), and using this method would involve the tribe directly with the process, encouraging engagement of the tribal elders, who in the past, have been resistant to research involving specimen storage of any kind. According to Mendelson (2009), collectivist cultures such as the Havasupai become more engaged if deeply involved in the decision-making process, and may add input that can help direct research methods. Including the tribal elders in the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the plan for storage and disposal of specimens will help to honor tribal customs and encourage trust between researchers and tribal members.

(Holmes and Mendelson would be referenced on a separate reference page.)
