This is a reflective opinion piece, on our efforts in Australia to achieve alignment between the goals of Indigenous self-determination, Indigenous studies programmes and decolonising theory for an open and critical dialogue in south-south scholarship agendas. In this spirit, extant approaches to Indigenous studies in the Australian higher…

Williams, Lewis; Bunda, Tracey; Claxton, Nick; MacKinnon, Iain – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
Addressing our growing planetary crisis and attendant symptoms of human and human-ecological disconnect, requires a profound epistemological reorientation regarding how societal structures are conceived and articulated; named here as the collective work of decolonisation. While global dynamics are giving rise to vital transnational solidarities…

Fleuri, Reinaldo Matias; Fleuri, Lilian Jurkevicz – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
This study argues that western societies have to learn from the cosmological vision of first peoples. In the Brazilian context, despite the genocide of these peoples, there still remains a rich variety of cultures, keeping their traditions and lifestyles based on the concept of "buen vivir," in Spanish, or Tekó Porã as the Guarani people…

Gallegos Anda, Carlos E. – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
In 2008, Ecuador reformed its Constitution after a prolonged period of economic, social and political crises.

McDowall, Ailie; Ramos, Fabiane – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
This paper takes us into the Writing Borderlands, an ambiguous in-between space borrowed from Anzaldúa's concept of Borderlands, where we as PhD students are in a constant state of transition.

Holas, Sergio – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018

I argue that it is an affrmative tool that enables us to sense and feel the other sides or domains of what we call reality and allows us to approach a plateau negated as a horizon of possibilities for conviviality and coexistence. Kusch's concept of negation brings forth an…

Mukandi, Bryan – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
This paper is a meditation on the idea of South-South dialogue, beginning with the "South-South Dialogues: Situated Perspectives in Decolonial Epistemologies" symposium held at the University of Queensland in 2015. I interrogate the concept of South-South dialogue, apposing it to the Cartesian 'I think', and then question the…

We reanalysed focus group interviews of indigenous Maori…
