We live in a web of influences, which have been built over thousands of years for which the greater part of our population are quite unaware. A small minority are beginning to parse together the meaning of our social and environmental crisis. These slides give an average viewer an overview to be able to understand our strengths for influencing this web. Mohandas Gandhi identified our challenge as "Become the change which you want to see in the world". Our indigenous heritage gives us the specific tools.


Around the world on every continent Time-based human-resource accounting for every contribution by female-male / young-old /able & differentially abled is differentially recognized in a system of progressive ownership in the means of production for every specialty. The accounting cycle integrates 1. 'Capital' (Latin 'cap' = 'head' = 'wisdom'), 2. 'Currency' ('flow'), 3. Condolence (Social Security), 4. Math-based communication with time-management as its foundation, 5. Collegial-education (Mentored-apprenticeship) etc. Here's Wiki on worldwide universal Shell-money . Is this indigenous self-generating sustainable universal system more advanced than our fragmented monetary, capital, social-security accounting & value systems?

Indigenous Participatory and time-based Human Resource Accounting practices across Founder, Worker, Supplier and Consumer stakeholder Member contributions and Associations are counter-intuitive for those trained to think in only monetary capital, currency, accounting, collegial and communication terms. For those who take the time, it is an eye-opener or world-view changer. The PPpresentation is complementary to the indigenous economic and social concepts presented in the rest of this Indigene Community website.

film 94 minutes on Marilyn Waring

The National Film Board of Canada created a film on the work of Marilyn Waring, who was member of the New Zealand parliament at 24 years old, Chair of the government Public Accounts committee, has written an excellent work on Time-Based Accounting as If Women Counted or Counting for Nothing. This 94 minute long film is essential for helping the mind out of 'money-only' evaluation and accounting habits and into the real currency which forms our life and society. Marilyn describes Time-Based accounting as it applies to domestic work in our homes as well as a broader function nationally and internationally. Marilyn's work has influenced governments internationally to evaluate and include women's domestic (in the home) work, contributions to systems of Public Health as well as some community services in systems of National Accounts. See also her Books, Documentaries work and awards at Institute of Public Policy , Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand.
