This panel explores the relationship between sociological and political thought and Indigenous knowledges. What are the ways that sociological and political thought have engaged or, perhaps more often marginalized Indigenous ways of knowing? How do Indigenous knowledges shed new light on central sociological and political theories, concepts and methodologies, and how do they fundamentally challenge paradigmatic assumptions within these approaches? This panel invites both theoretical and empirical papers that look at these questions specifically through the foregrounding of Indigenous ontologies, epistemologies and methodologies.
