- Key theoretical, methodological and service issues and challenges in the Indigenization of social work are reviewed, including the way in which adaptation can lead to more effective practices within Indigenous communities and emerging economies, and how adaptation can provide greater insight into cross-cultural understanding and practice. Hence we concluded that 'Indigenization' is an outmoded concept and Indigenous social work is a just cause. Not only is the term 'Indigenization' appropriated and, as such, offensive to Indigenous People, there has developed a plethora of terms, such as localization, adaptation, reconceptualization, and so on, to describe this process of adaptation to Westen technology.
