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.
