This paper studies research concerning the field of Indigenous entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs of the Pacific with particular emphasis given to the Kanaka Maoli of the Hawaiian Islands. It discusses the notion of Kanakanomics as informed by the traditional ahupuaʻa system based in indigenous approaches to organizational behavior and theory. It delves into how these epistemologies then influence contemporary Kanaka Maoli entrepreneurs. Lastly, this paper provides a brief case analysis of the Puʻuhonua o Puʻuhuluhulu as an example of an indigenous start-up organization that has implemented the aforementioned organizational behaviors and theories.
