Abstract

Examples of indigenous perspectives infusing management practices and research are scarce in the mainstream management literature. This article summarizes different approaches to defining indigenous, provides examples of indigenous management perspectives, and describes the concept of indigenous capitalism. Collectively the article demonstrates the diversity of philosophies underpinning management practice and highlights opportunities for advancing management theory and practice by including indigenous research approaches, knowledge, and practices.
