Call For Papers

The world is currently facing a crisis in the revitalisation of indigenous languages. On average, every fortnight an indigenous language becomes extinct as sole surviving speakers pass away or indigenous languages are overwhelmed by those of a dominant culture. In line with this ethos, AlterNative aims to publish one article in its original language per issue.

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal which aims to present indigenous views from native indigenous perspectives. We are dedicated to the analysis and dissemination of indigenous knowledge that belongs to cultural, traditional, tribal and aboriginal peoples, as well as first nations, from around the world.

In line with this ethos, AlterNative publishes one article in its original language per issue. Papers should respond to one or more themes of the journal:

• Origins
• Place
• Peoples
• Community
• Culture
• Traditional and oral history
• Heritage
• Colonialism
• Power
• Intervention
• Development
• Self-determination

Submission and deadlines

Articles should be in an indigenous language and address the themes of the journal.

AlterNative primarily publishes substantive articles that address a particular indigenous issue or theme. Each article should be accompanied by a 100-150 word abstract in English.

Submissions received before 31 December 2009 will be considered for our first general issue of 2010. However, we accept submissions throughout the year via our online portal.
