Description

Research on Indigenous issues rarely focuses on life in major metropolitan centres.

Instead, there is a tendency to frame rural locations as emblematic of authentic or "real" Indigeneity.

While such a perspective may support Indigenous struggles for territory and recognition, it fails to account for large swaths of contemporary Indigenous realities, including the increased presence of Indigenous people in cities.

The contributors to this volume explore the implications of urbanization on the production of distinctive Indigenous identities in Canada, the US, New Zealand, and Australia.

In doing so, they demonstrate the resilience, creativity, and complexity of the urban Indigenous presence.
