Chapter Two provides an in-depth analysis of the ways in which knowledge – its production and dissemination – provides the basis for the suppression of Indigenous peoples in settler colonial contexts. It discusses Indigenous critiques of the ways in which criminologists marginalise Indigenous knowledge, and seek to maintain hegemony over the construction and dissemination of knowledge about Indigenous experiences of settler colonial crime control policies and interventions. Utilising case studies from Aotearoa New Zealand and Canada, the chapter demonstrates the added value that Indigenous approaches to social harm can have in alleviating the negative impact of settler colonial criminal justice.
