    Abstract

    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.
