Trans-Indigenous is a concept concerned with storytelling and re-telling as a means for engaging in Indigenous resistance and global Indigenous political action. A concept originating in literary studies, it is concerned with the recovery and reclamation of Indigenous knowledges and the recentring of Indigenous perspectives and voices. It responds to a settler-colonial tactic of erasing and filtering Indigenous knowledge and culture. Trans-Indigenous as a praxis for resistance facilitates the challenging of dominant settler-colonial tropes in scholarship, literature, nation-state historical narratives, and as a way to establish Indigenous solidarity in global political activism.
