An Indigenous Australian Standpoint Theory

Abstract

This paper examines the contemporary developments of Indigenous epistemology within western theory. An interpretation of an Australian Aboriginal philosophy is married to the concepts of three notable Indigenous scholars to produce a model that is universal in its application in Indigenous theory, which provides a suitable framework for understanding Indigenous epistemology. It is proposed that this is an alternative model for the Indigenous researcher to adopt in lieu of standard western theory in their approach in the search of 'knowledge' within Universities that are predominantly grounded in western ideology. This paper forms a basis for discussion and subsequent development of an Indigenous Standpoint Theory
