Abstract

Purpose-We share experiences from the research process that expose the shortcomings and flaws of the different research production review mechanisms. Our aim is to highlight the resistance and paternalistic misunderstandings that characterise some processes when considering indigenous 'subjects'. Design/methodology/approach-This chapter draws upon examples from primary source material as the basis for analysis and discussion. These examples are drawn from academic reports, correspondence to authors and media accounts. The critical approach is influenced by the theoretical works that address the influence and infiltration of 'commonsense' understandings, and the resistance to alternative academic inquiry and interpretation of indigenous sports participation issues in Australia. Findings -The structure, resources and mechanisms available to the dominant alliance of dominant groups serve to curtail and suppress alternative research efforts. Research limitations/ implications -The available examples are not drawn from the broad field. Indeed, they are limited to those available via research circles of colleagues. Any conclusions should be considered within the notion of context specific rather than any broad generalisation.
