Abstract. Mixed-method bicultural research in Aotearoa New Zealand, including the weaving of Indigenous and other knowledges, is experiencing a resurgence within many academic disciplines. However, mātauranga Māori – the knowledge, culture, value and worldview of the Indigenous peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand – and Te Ao Māori, the Māori world, is poorly represented within geomorphological investigations. Here, we review existing efforts to include Indigenous knowledge in geologic and geomorphic studies from the international research community and provide an overview of the current state of mātauranga Māori within research endeavours in Aotearoa New Zealand. We review three theoretical frameworks for including mātauranga Māori in research projects and three models for including Māori values within research. We identify direct benefits to geomorphology and discuss how these frameworks and models can be adapted for use with Indigenous knowledge systems outside of Aotearoa New Zealand. The aim of this review is to encourage geomorphologists around the world to engage with local Indigenous peoples to develop new approaches to geomorphic research. In Aotearoa New Zealand, we hope to inspire geomorphologists to embark on research journeys that engender genuine partnership with Māori and that promote toitū te mātauranga, the enduring protection, promotion and respect of mātauranga Māori.

Short summary
This review highlights potential contributions that Indigenous knowledge can make to geomorphic research. We evaluate several frameworks and models for including Indigenous knowledge in geomorphic research and discuss how they can be adapted for use with Indigenous communities across the world. We propose that weaving Indigenous knowledge with geomorphic science has the potential to create new solutions and understandings that neither body of knowledge could produce in isolation.
