ABSTRACT

The central premise of the themed articles in this edition
is colonisation, or more particularly the ongoing
relationship which Indigenous peoples have with the
systems of this dispossession. At the interface of the
destructive hegemonies secured through colonialism we
have resisted them and sustained in many powerful ways
our systems of ‘knowing, being and acting.’ The trauma
of colonisation manifests in many different ways, at many
different levels as does the absolute strength and
perseverance of Indigenous peoples in maintaining our
sovereign place on Lands now claimed by others. In
between these positions of continuance and resistance
are complex spaces of constant negotiation and
compromise. It is within these spaces that we, the
colonised, are forced to act while the colonisers continue
to enforce the rules of our engagement.
