The researcher “demonstrates cultural sensitivity and competence through knowing key values and stakeholders”. They need to also “exhibit culturally appropriate communication and willingness to learn” (Eide and Allen 2005: 4). See also Chapters 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 18 in this volume. Doing cross-cultural research necessitates the acquisition of cultural knowledge of the social group that researchers wish to learn from (Papadopoulos and Lees 2002; Hall and Kulig 2004; Birman 2005; Struthers and Peden-McAlpine 2005).

2001; Laverack and Brown 2003; Redmond 2003; Hall and Kulig 2004; Birman 2005). As Eide and Allen (2005: 2) suggest, research which will benefit the local group must be developed and carried out in collaboration with local members. This can be done when the researchers get to know, and are also known by, community members and their leaders. They suggest that in some Aboriginal communities such as Hawaiians and Micronesians, “knowing and being known are crucial to every activity”. This “knowing and being known” will accommodate research entry and success in recruiting potential research participants in these cultural groups.
