This chapter examines two similar yet culturally differing Indigenous views. It discusses Indigenous research from a New Zealand M_ori and an Australian Aboriginal standpoint. We explore our personal and professional views on Indigenous ontology, axiology, epistemology and methodology, and the methods that inform and are shaped by these worldviews and philosophies. In doing so, we critically reflect on the application and significance of Indigenous research, particularly within the fields of business studies, to share Indigenous knowledge and thinking, and allow an Indigenous perspective on diversity, equality and inclusion. Our views offer a conceptual and reflective insight into our personal experiences and concerns as members of the small but growing group of Indigenous scholars in business.
