Responsible management represents an advance in managerialism’s assumptions about the role of managers in addressing unwelcome side-effects of the capitalistic firm and its market orientation, but existing literature may not adequately account for an Indigenous view of the concept, its practice or its potential. This chapter adds to emerging Indigenous managerial discourse on responsible business and management. We show how indigeneity – Indigenous world views, philosophies, identities and practices – can help reconfigure the nature and role of the firm to achieve purposes, which are not only sustainable, responsible and ethically favourable, but align with Indigenous concepts of relationship, stakeholder and value. We share examples of Indigenous firms in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and Canada exhibiting elements of responsible management from an Indigenous perspective, engaging in economic development in ways that balance cultural and commercial imperatives, preserve their cultural heritgage, uphold Indigenous rights and meet the needs and expectations of their people.
