Indigenous research: ontologies, axiologies, epistemologies and methodologies

Ella Henry , Dennis FOLEY

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses Indigenous research from two Indigenous perspectives. One author is a New Zealand Maori woman with a business school background, who has in recent decades moved into Indigenous studies. The other is an Australian Aboriginal man, who is a professor in management studies. Together, we explore our views about the ontology, axiology, epistemology, methodology and methods that inform and are shaped by our Indigenous worldview. The chapter is structured in two distinct voices, representing our similar but different experiences as Indigenous scholars. It will critically reflect on the application and significance of Indigenous research, particularly in the fields of business studies, to share Indigenous knowledge and thinking, and to ensure an Indigenous perspective on diversity, equality and inclusion. We offer a conceptual and reflective insight into our experiences and concerns, as members of the small but growing group of Indigenous scholars within business disciplines.
