The Handbook of Diverse Economies

Edited by J. K. Gibson-Graham and Kelly Dombroski

Economic diversity abounds in a more-than-capitalist world, from worker-recuperated cooperatives and anti-mafia social enterprises to caring labour and the work of Earth Others, from fair trade and social procurement to community land trusts, free universities and Islamic finance. The Handbook of Diverse Economies presents research that inventories economic difference as a prelude to building ethical ways of living on our dangerously degraded planet. With contributing authors from twenty countries, it presents new thinking around subjectivity and methodology as strategies for making other worlds possible.

Chapter 55: Working with Indigenous methodologies: Kaupapa Māori meets diverse economies

Joanne Waitoa and Kelly Dombroski


Scholars of diverse economies have used community engaged methods to uncover and ‘map’ diverse economic practices in place, beginning with an open stance towards what is present and not assuming that everything will be subsumed into capitalism. Similarly, Indigenous methodologies challenge Western assumptions around grand narratives and deficit perspectives. This chapter encourages a conversation between diverse economies research methodologies and indigenous ontologies. The chapter discusses the Kaupapa M_ori methodology, an approach to research by, with and for Māori, the Indigenous people of Aotearoa New Zealand. Through a discussion of two case studies in Aotearoa New Zealand, this chapter identifies instructive points of connection and dissonance between Kaupapa Māori and diverse economies methodologies and approaches.
