Indigenous Psychology Task Force

Indigenous Psychology is an intellectual movement across the globe, based on the following factors:

  1. A reaction against the colonization/hegemony of Western psychology.

  2. The need for non-Western cultures to solve their local problems through indigenous practices and applications.

  3. The need for a non-Western culture to recognize itself in the constructs and practices of psychology.

  4. The need to use indigenous philosophies and concepts to generate theories of global discourse.
