Abstract

Within Indigenous studies the concept of sovereignty has received a wide range of expressions, theories and realizations. Our article covers one part of this vast literature on Indigenous sovereignties by looking at how various books have centered Indigenous sovereignty within their analysis. This survey foregrounds our special issue on creative sovereignty by illustrating the breadth of how Indigenous peoples and scholarship have engaged the concept of sovereignty to both understand the present and imagine different futures. This introductory article for the special issue on Creative Sovereignties does three things: (1) it illustrates that Indigenous sovereignties exist in the in-between space between what is and what is possible, (2) it puts forward a three-part understanding of creativity, and lastly (3) it introduces each of the articles, notes from the field, and creative works featured in this special issue.
