This paper discusses the insider and outsider epistemological dilemma that sideline an African woman while conducting research within her culture. The study was based upon hermeneutic inquiry designed to give voice to the small (household) experiences of rural Igbo women in Nigeria (mothers and health workers), to consider how their viewpoints, perspectives, and imaginings might contribute to the fight for a malaria-free Nigeria. The theoretical framework used was African womanism to reflect how women live with the reality of the threat of malaria. The issues of privilege few research relationship and the negotiating power and sense of sisterhood. To see if my reflective experience on assumed insider/outsider positions in this research would contribute to the current discourses in qualitative research. It begins with my fieldwork memo and ends with a quote from Precious Opurum. This perspective is to allow the reader to view research as an interpretative element on one side and socio-narratology situated in the world of qualitative research study.
