Resurgence as Relationality
by Gina Starblanket
Indigenous resurgence can take place in a multiplicity of ways in our everyday experiences, in various realms of life and on individual, interpersonal, and institutional levels. Although it occurs in diverse forms and carries different meanings across and within communities, it is generally understood as comprising a process of critically informed action or praxis rather than a body of theory or ideas. Yet as more writers (including the contributors to this volume) engage with questions surrounding the nature, form and implications of different approaches to resurgence, it is becoming increasingly evident that resurgence movements also have a strong theoretical component.
