This chapter focuses on discourse in the research ethics process and practice from an Indigenous Fijian perspective. It aims to illustrate how Indigenous epistemological frameworks may be adopted in both traditional and non-traditional research settings. Indigenous ways of knowing offer valuable lessons for social work and community development practice, as exploring the underlying values and norms of Indigenous population groups enables practitioners to work more effectively within these communities. Examples from original research relating to relational networks, forms of collaboration and communal resilience will be used to explore governance processes within Indigenous community groups, and the associated values that embrace localised forms of social and cultural capital.
