About the Journal

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal. We aim to present Indigenous worldviews and scholarly research from native Indigenous perspectives from around the world. AlterNative is published quarterly in print and online. AlterNative publishes papers that substantively address and critically engage with Indigenous issues from a scholarly indigenous viewpoint. All papers must address and engage with current international and national literature and academic and/or Indigenous theory and make a significant contribution to the field of indigenous studies.
