This issue looks at the various definitions and understandings of the relationship between Indigenous Science and Western Science. One of our network members, A/Professor Michael R. Matthews, has written an article on the issue which takes a contrary position. He has extensive experiences promoting and analysing the nexus of culture and science. The editorial is written by Dr. Jessica Hernandez, an environmentalist and author who is currently receiving wide praise across the globe for her Indigenous science themed book Fresh Banana Leaves. Another highlight of this issue is a story from the North West Territories of Canada: The frontline of conservation: how Indigenous guardians are reinforcing sovereignty and science on their lands, containing a series of images and videos.
