The Journal of Global Indigeneity is a unique and innovative digital journal focused on archiving filmed and/or recorded proceedings from symposia, conferences, and workshops on topics that impact the lives of Indigenous peoples and communities around the world. The journal will also publish critical essays related to the symposia themes in an effort to engage with academics and Indigenous communities and to encourage the relationship between theory and praxis – especially as it relates to Indigenous Studies. JGI will be published twice a year. Critical essays are peer reviewed and the journal contents are edited by an international group of scholars from multiple disciplines. While JGI is housed at the University of Wollongong, Australia, it has a global focus.
