    In our contemporary moment, the world is seeing an increase in transnational Indigenous and decolonial activist movements. Idle No More, the BDS movement for a Free Palestine, and #NoDAPL and Mni Wiconi have all garnered international attention and trans-cultural calls for solidarity. These movements exemplify and build on long traditions of Indigenous resistance in international contexts and commitments to other marginalized groups. Mindful of these continued struggles and concerns, this special issue seeks to bring together some of the diverse ways in which Native American and other Indigenous narratives circulate to create global influences: whether through literature, historical narratives, the visual or performative arts, or digital media; irrespective of language and wherever they transpire, from public spaces to classrooms. The critical and creative pieces in this special issue attest to the necessity of thinking globally as a way to understand the connectivity and relationality that characterize Indigenous experiences and modes of resistance.

    A special topics issue of Transmotion dedicated to "red readings." These responses explore what happens when a non-native text is read from a native perspective.
