The first two articles of Volume 12, Issue 4 are now available online. "Te Mata Ira - faces of the gene: Developing a cultural foundation for biobanking and genomic research involving Māori," by Maui Hudson and co-authors describes Māori concepts relevant to biobanking and genomic research, creating a cultural foundation upon which Māori communities can ground their discussions around appropriate kawa (principles) and tikanga (cultural protocols) with researchers. 

The latest issue, Volume 12, Issue 3 is now available online and in print. This issue has a special focus on Indigenous autonomy projects, with four of the articles exploring the historical and/or contemporary causes of both the idea of indigenous autonomy and the form it takes in specific cases. The articles in this issue bear testament to the diversity of the notion of autonomy and feature case studies from Russia, Latin America, USA, Canada, New Zealand, and the Marianas Archipelagoes.

The latest issues of AlterNative, Volume 12, Issue 1, is now available online and in print. A common thread in a number of articles in this issue is Indigenous peoples’ continued struggle over epistemological control of forms of knowledge production.

The latest issue of AlterNative Volume 11, Issue 4 is now available online and in print. Most of the articles in this issue were submitted in response to our themed call for papers on indigenous modernities, a re-imagining of the indigenous self in the context of Western modernities and urbanisation. The articles in this issue speak to this theme and cover topics such as indigenous identity constructions, nation-building, social media practices, as well as language revitalization, urban indigenous research ethics, and indigenous health care.
