The Routledge Companion to Global Indigenous History presents exciting innovations in the dynamic field of Indigenous global history while also outlining ethical, political, and practical research. The book features contributors, both Indigenous and settler, across several geographical locations, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Northern Europe and the Americas, who illustrate the important role of Indigenous history and Indigenous knowledges for contemporary concerns, including climate change, spirituality and religious movements, gender negotiations, modernity and mobility, and reflections on the meaning of ‘nation’ and ‘global’. Showcasing the state of the art in Indigenous global history, the contributors suggest exciting new directions in the field, examine its many research challenges and show its resonances for a global politics of the present and future.
