About this book


This volume explores broad conceptual questions raised by the 'discovery' of indigenous peoples as increasingly important global political actors - questions made all the more urgent by the sudden recognition that indigenous diplomacies are not at all new, but merely newly noticed.

"This collection of brilliant, scholarly essays adds a necessary dimension to the study of International Relations that greatly enriches that field of study. As well, the essays move Indigenous diplomatic activities - precolonial to the present - from margin to center." - Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz,Professor Emeritus, California State University, and author of Indians of the Americas: Human Rights and Self Determination and Roots of Resistance: History of Land Tenure in New Mexico
