This pluridisciplinary issue analyses creative practices by Indigenous artists, or artists working closely with Indigenous communities. How do Indigenous societies perceive and interact with pollution and toxic substances that affect their environment and territories? How can conceptions of waste and its recycling enlighten discourses on Indigenous sovereignty? How does the notion of sovereignty – as understood, lived, and defined by Indigenous peoples – inform and influence artistic practices that respond to contemporary environmental challenges?
