This volume explores the complexity, vibrancy, and contemporaneity of indigenous cultures today. It understands the concept of “Comparative Indigenous Studies” in such a transnational and interdisciplinary sense. It links indigenous communities in the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. Bringing together scholars from the humanities and social sciences, from law, economics, cultural geography, and medicine, this book highlights the ways in which indigenous cultures have resisted, time and again, the myth of their own disappearance.
