This paper presents an integrative literature review of representation of Indigenous peoples and knowledge in transitions scholarship. The aim of the review is to contribute to the broadening of the conceptual lenses used in transitions research and highlight emerging themes. Through an inductive latent content analysis, we identified five themes from the literature review: calls for more work, geography, justice, Indigenous-led, and governance and participation. Then we identified four emerging research directions: the phenomenon of “epistemological superiority”, issues with research methods, relationships to systems, justice, and governance, and connection to land. We end the paper with an invitation for researchers to contribute to this area of research, and guidance for how we can broaden conceptual lens and respectfully include different perspectives in transitions research.
