Description

Indigenous Women's Voices: 20 Years on from Linda Tuhiwai Smith’s Decolonizing Methodologies is an edited volume by Emma Lee, a Trawlwulwuy woman of Tebrakunna country, north-east Tasmania, Australia; Jen Evans, a Dharug woman with dual connections to Dharug and Palawa country; and, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Vice-Chancellor with responsibilities for Maori development at the University of Waikato. When Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples by Linda Tuhiwai Smith was first published it ignited a passion for research change that respected Indigenous peoples, knowledges and campaigned to reclaim indigenous ways of knowing and being. At a time when Indigenous voices were marginalised, Decolonizing Methodologies advocated an Indigenous viewpoint that represented the daily struggle to be heard and to find a place in academia for Indigenous peoples. Professor Smith's ground-breaking text has been a key influence in highlighting the historical harms and barriers from Western research, as much as a handbook for the everyday attempts to decolonize research from an Indigenous perspective. Twenty years on this collection celebrates the breadth and depth of how Indigenous writers are shaping the post-colonial research worlds today. Contributions from Indigenous female researchers this collection offers the much needed academic space to distinguish methodological approaches and overcome the novelty confines of being marginal voices
