She has held positions in the Departments of Psychology and Education at the University of Auckland and was a Senior Research Fellow in the International Research Institute for Maori and Indigenous Peoples, University of Auckland. Most of her work is with Maori and Iwi (tribal) organizations and NGOs. Her research interests are wide ranging and include Maori health, community development, and research and evaluation ethics. Bagele Chilisa is an Associate Professor at the University of Botswana where she teachers research methods and evaluation courses. Her recent books include Educational Research: Towards Sustainable Development, Research Methods for Adult Educators in Africa, and Indigenous Research Methodologies. Indigenous Research Methodologies is the first textbook that situates research in a larger, historical, cultural and global context and draws on indigenous knowledge from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and Asia. Her research focuses on the development of research methodologies that are relevant, context specific and appropriate in African contexts and other culturally complex communities. She writes about and practices research methodologies that make visible the voices of those who continue to supper oppression and discrimination on the basis of sex, race/ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or social class.
