Kia Tu Ki te Tahi. When we stand, we stand as one


Abstract


Globally, colonialism has disconnected Indigenous peoples from their culture, community and land. It has left an indelible footprint on the education aspirations of Indigenes, often leaving them locked out of education systems and blaming them for their lack of ‘success’. Emanating from social justice through inclusion, equity and power sharing, indigenisation is not merely an add-on deriving from another world perspective: it presents opportunities to challenge cultural preconceptions and the way we order the world.
Indigenisation advances authentic cultures and fosters the sharing of knowledge with non-indigenous peoples. It nurtures the adoption of Indigenous values and practices in our work and daily lives, and creates pathways for adaption to local ways.
Junctures invited submissions on the theme of indigenisation and received response to the call from authors in the Cook Islands, Norway, Australia, Taiwan, Canada, South Africa, and Aotearoa, New Zealand.
