We Help Each Other Up: Indigenous Scholarship, Survivance, Tribalography, and Sovereign Activism
Francis, Lee, IV; Munson, Michael M.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n1 p48-57 2017
In an academic system that perpetuates the control and limitation of Indigenous narrative in order to reinforce the Western settler-colonial framework, Francis and Munson aim to create a more appropriate space for Indigenous scholarship. Through conversation, the authors discuss the exploration of sovereign scholar activism through an Indigenous autoethnographic approach. Tribalography, Survivance, and creation and experiential stories of home serve as fuel for the examination of identity, community, and authenticity in the formation of a framework built upon the scholarship of Indigenous researchers, conversations, and experiences since time immemorial. Questions are posed to continue and broaden the conversation toward actualizing a state of sovereign scholarship and the entrenchment of Tribalography and Survivance as means of establishing an Indigenous scholarship free from the confines of settler-colonialism.
