What counts as indigenous religions? Who uses this term? How are their claims connected to indigenous movements and struggles for recognition, rights and sovereignty? Who opposes and problematizes the category of indigenous religions, and why do they do that?
To address these questions and introduce the study of indigenous religions we are joined by the authors of the open-access book Indigenous Religion(s): Local Grounds, Global Networks (Routledge 2020), professor Siv Ellen Kraft and professor Bjørn Ola Tafjord, both from UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
