Talanoa: The need for culture-specific methodologies
Farzana Gounder
Research Fellow
University of Waikato

Methodological practice/approach
Embedded in cultural worldviews, knowledge systems, lived experience, representations, and values of the people being represented and re-presented through research
Critical Theory + Kaupapa Mäori Theorising + Tongan Kakala framing

More than face-to-face interaction
It respects cultural conceptualizations of how things ‘should be’:
respectfully aware of cultural protocols and practices, values, ethics, philosophies, principles around knowledge sharing
What/when/where/how/why this knowledge can and can’t be made available

Using Talanoa with Fiji Indians
Non-indigenous Pacific community

Talanoa as a collaborative storytelling practice:
Knowledge sharing
Power sharing

Ends and beginnings
End of research does not mark the end of a relationship

People are not only the objects of research
but are part of the decisions and processes of defining frames, methods and principles within which research knowledge is handled and filtered, processed and disseminated.
Nabobo-Baba, 2008

Insider Perspective
Researcher fluency in the language to be able to verify culturally grounded concepts
Ethical approval
