What is AlterNative?
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.
The latest issue of AlterNative 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.
