Situated within recent work by Indigenous scholars on futurities, (ab)Original women Michelle Bishop and Lauren Tynan adopt Indigenous autoethnography to combine reflection, narrative and storytelling to reimagine development futures. Reframing the future as something that is created, dreamed, and acted upon, the authors traverse temporalities invoking more-than-human agencies as they share teachings and relational perspectives through Eagle, Ant, Grandmother and Granddaughter stories. For students of development, the stories contain place-based meanings and practices enhancing their capacities to think critically and holistically while inviting students to think about how these stories might be meaningful in their own context and lives. Imagining the world beyond a human perspective, the chapter teaches that human survival is deeply bound to the wellbeing of Country.
