Six articles of our latest issue are now available online. "Daughters of the drum: Decolonizing health and wellness with Native American women," by Danica Brown reports on a culturally centered qualitative study utilizing photovoice and talking circles to illuminate aspects of resilience related to Native American perceptions of health and wellness.

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.

The latest issue of AlterNative, Volume 11, Issue 3, is now available online and in print. Highlights in this issue are two articles which focus on indigenous bereavement practices. Also notable is an article from Canada which looks at the health-seeking behaviour of Aboriginal youth in distress, as well as two articles which deal with settler-colonial practices of land alienation in the 19th century.

Topics in this issue of AlterNative, Volume 11, Issue 2 are diverse and cover a museological project on indigenous watercraft, two articles on indigenous health and well-being, women’s traditions, knowledge systems and environmental governance, the history of Māori land loss, community participatory action research, and the Mayan refugee identity crisis.

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.
