A multi-disciplinary approach to the phenomena that has been labelled Indigenous entrepreneurship. The student will explore historical accounts and practices of Indigenous peoples from around the globe focusing on Australia and the Pacifica in the first instance and North America as a secondary study. The unit reviews entrepreneurial activity in Australia dating back to 6000 BC, examining the socio-economic attributes of entrepreneurial or commercial activity within an Indigenous understanding or standpoint. Internationally students will examine 400 years of colonisation and its impact on Indigenous commercial activity with the impact of currency and financial practices. The unit holistically reviews entrepreneurial aspects of social interaction that predates and often operates outside of western accepted management and modern entrepreneurial theory.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Investigate the activities, practices, leadership, values and contributions made by Australian Indigenous entrepreneurs in terms of culture and profit;
2. Critically analyse issues of authenticity in depicting Indigenous culture in entrepreneurship;
3. Determine any potential blockages and barriers to success for indigenous entrepreneurship in a range on contexts and countries;
4. Critically explore entrepreneur/leader development and enterprise/leadership development in an indigenous context; and
5. Critically explain the importance of the study of new directions in Indigenous enterprise.
Three hours of on-campus lectures and interactive workshops per week.
