Professor Larissa Behrendt, Dr Simone Bignall, Professor Daryle Rigney and Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith
Indigenous Nations and Collaborative Futures publishes cutting-edge work by Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors and Indigenous-participant teams, whose inquiry advances post-colonial political thinking. Attending critically to settler-colonialism in the contexts of Australia, Aotearoa-New Zealand and other nations of the Southern Pacific Rim, this series supplements and enriches new scholarship emerging from Indigenous perspectives and experiences in the United States and Canada. It aims to explore and showcase the diverse ways in which Indigenous authorities all around the world are designing and utilising modern political institutions that match with their cultural values and assert a continuing right and responsibility to care for traditional lands and waters. Conceived through the optic of the political, ‘Indigenous Nations and Collaborative Futures’ will publish innovative and important research that examines the transformative potential of cross-cultural interaction, collaboration and agreement-making to successfully mediate culturally diverse political interests and values in settler-colonial jurisdictions. It contributes new thinking about the reparation of historical injustice and the terms and future conditions of positive coexistence after colonisation.
