Indigenous theorizing: 

Indigenous theorizing ‘ [Indigenous researchers] work within their research projects or institutions as insiders within a particular paradigm or research model, and as outsiders because they are often marginalised and perceived to be representative of either a minority or a rival interest group…when in the community (“in the field”) or when sitting in on research meetings it can feel like inside-out/ outside-in research’ ( Tuhiwai Smith, 2001, pp.5).

Slide8: 

‘While the language of imperialism and colonialism has changed, the sites of struggle remain. The struggle for the validity of indigenous knowledges may no longer be over the recognition that indigenous peoples have ways of viewing the world which are unique, but over proving the authenticity of , and control over, our own forms of knowledge’ (Tuhiwai Smith, 2001,pp.104)

Third World Feminism: 

Third World Feminism Poetic and personal writing style Autobiography as political commentary Mix of Indigenous language and English

Chela Sandoval “The Methodology of the Oppressed” (Sandoval, 2001)

Pacific Processes: 

Pacific Processes ‘One of the many tools available to the coloniser – to subjugate, assimilate, and colonise indigenous minds – was education….colonial education backfired on its masters and was used to undermine, challenge and deconstruct imperialist master discourses. Literacy was one of the tools/ weapons embraced by Pacific peoples’ (Marsh, 2000,pp.137-8).

Slide12: 

‘Consciously and unconsciously I have searched for Nei Nim’anoa within my blood, among friends and lovers, along lines of thought, and in my broken Gilbertese’ (Teaiwa, 1995pp.ix).
