    Beyond Colonization to the Fore of Social Development

    The Journal of Indigenous Social Development (JISD) is calling for papers for a special issue that examines the extraordinary attributes of Indigenous peoples that engendered vision, determination, and resurgence despite long histories of subjugation.  Amid unprecedented social strife and climate change, traditional knowledge and lessons of cultural emancipation must be brought to bear and placed at the fore of social development.   

    The JISD Board is seeking manuscripts reflecting strengths-based orientations drawn from Indigenous vision, determination, and emancipatory strategies.
