Cultural encounters with sporting organisation: Ethico-politics at the interface of Indigenous culture and organization
The introduction of postcolonial theory to the critical study of organizations has brought with it perspectives on alterity that extend debates about identity, ethics and politics beyond familiar western-Eurocentric contexts. At the peripheries of the postcolonial world, an epistemic coloniality persists (Ibarra-Colado, 2006). This must be confronted and disrupted if ways of knowing that politically acknowledge and ethically accept difference and ‘otherness’ are to be found (after Dussel and Ibarra-Colado, 2006). Acknowledgement and acceptance of difference and ‘otherness’ being fundamental to the ability of many ‘non-Western’, ‘traditional’ and/or ‘Indigenous’ people’ to harness their everyday engagements with ‘modern’ organization in their ongoing struggles to remain distinct and self-determining.
