Aboriginal entrepreneurship: is it a career or a lifestyle change?

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


This chapter is a critical analysis of several topics from the author’s Indigenous Australian standpoint. Confusion in literature exists regarding the definition of Indigenous entrepreneurship. My own definition was based on Australian empirical evidence (Foley 2000), the next definition that followed was Hindle’s non-empirical definition based on Canadian First Nations (Hindle and Rushworth 2002). The bulk of literature in the discipline has been written by non-Indigenous authors with several other important definitions such as Dana (2005). If we cannot agree on a definition, do we fully understand Indigenous entrepreneurship?
