"Critically Sovereign is pure Indigenous brilliance from start to finish, making intelligent, incisive, and elegant interventions in fields often wrought by division and controversy. These outstanding essays embody the highest levels of excellence and ground conversations around gender, sexuality, and feminist studies in the proper frame—Indigenous self-determination. This is a book I've been waiting for." — Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, author of Dancing on Our Turtle's Back: Stories of Nishnaabeg Re-Creation, Resurgence, and a New Emergence
"This volume argues compellingly that Indigenous peoplehood, landed inhabitance, and interrogations of the power of settler states should focalize theories of gender and sexuality, and that gender and sexual politics must be understood as being key to the very question of indigeneity within Indigenous studies. Critically Sovereign will have a lasting impact within numerous fields for years to come." — Scott L. Morgensen, author of Spaces between Us: Queer Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Decolonization
