Indigenous Theories



This core course in the Masters of Indigenous Studies focuses on indigenous theories. Theories emerge from particular indigenous knowledge traditions and ways of seeing the world, and in turn inform indigenous research methodologies. While grounded in te ao Māori the course covers material from a range of indigenous peoples and indigenous perspectives. Through close readings of key texts and engaging in seminar discussions, students will deepen their insight into the knowledge systems that embody indigenous world views and be able to critically and analytically engage with historical and contemporary issues in indigenous studies. Student participation is critical. You will bring your own knowledge into the learning spaces and create the canon for this course.
