SILVA, Maíra Pedroso Corrêa da  y  GRUBITS, Sonia. Reflections about ethics on research related to native populations. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.1, pp. 46-57. ISSN 1414-9893.

This work presents a set of reflections about ethical questions involving research with native people within the Social Psychology area. To start our reflection we begin with the question "what for and for whom a specific knowledge is produced?", inserting it in an ethical and political discussion that we believe to be fundamental for the whole research. Sharing the discussions of Guareschi (2003), we have based our work on a conception of ethics as an instance of criticism, what means considering it as an incessant search for transformation, and a propositive subject as well, and, finally, it means that ethics can only refer to relationships, since it is actually a relationship itself. Starting from these three statements we have proceeded a reflection about the research with native groups, believing that focusing within certain values is fundamental to avoid the repetition of the same abusive behavior toward these populations during History.
