AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples
Call for Papers: Indigenous Modernities
Deadline: 15 July 2015

As a consequence, new forms of political society and social order are under development. A wide variety of unique organizations and institutions are emerging and new ethical standards developing as indigenous modernities take shape across the globe. We welcome papers on all aspects of these emerging indigenous
