Strategic Alliances

Whilst for many indigenous peoples across the world survival at a basic human level is still the priority concern, the indigenous peoples’ project was reformulated around a much wider platform of concerns following the Second World War and more particularly from the 1960s. … The significance of the period and the reformulation of the indigenous peoples’ project that unfolded during this era is that a new agenda for indigenous activity has been framed that goes beyond the decolonization aspirations of a particular indigenous community towards the development of global indigenous strategic alliances.
