‘Indigenous Nations and Collaborative Futures’ is a new book series edited by Larissa Behrendt, Simone Bignall, Daryle Rigney and Linda Tuhiwai Smith that extends the global reach of cutting-edge research to advance post-colonial political thinking in the regional contexts of Australia, Aotearoa-New Zealand and other nations of the Southern Pacific Rim. Attending critically to legacies of settler-colonialism in this region, the series supplements and enriches new scholarship emerging from perspectives and experiences in the United States, Canada and other Indigenous territories around the globe. Books appearing in the series will explore and showcase the diverse ways in which Indigenous authorities 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 by Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors and Indigenous-participant teams who study the transformative potential of cross-cultural interaction, collaboration and agreement-making to successfully mediate culturally diverse political interests and values in settler-colonial jurisdictions. The series contributes new thinking about the reparation of historical injustice and the terms and future conditions of positive coexistence after colonisation.

Published titles will appear from 2019 on the series website at https://rowmaninternational.com/our-publishing/series/indigenous-nations-and-collaborative-futures/
