The letter also said that while more and more Indigenous people are choosing to study science or make it their career, Indigenous communities have long been seen as mere research subjects by Western scientists.

"Our tribal communities need more culturally embedded scientists and at the same time, institutions of Western science need more Indigenous perspectives," it reads.
