This chapter discusses a research project that sought consultative advice from a group of children regarding future research that was being contemplated regarding younger children’s learning, community engagements, and hopes for their futures. It focuses on the ongoing ethnic dilemmas and processes that were present as this research consultation proceeded, including ethical issues of research with children that led to the consultation and then ethical processes that were experienced with the children through the consultation. 41 references.
