Title: Indigenous Articulations 
Author: Clifford, James
Date: 2001
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Center for Pacific Islands Studies
Citation: Clifford, J. 2001. Indigenous Articulations. Special issue, The Contemporary Pacific 13 (2): 468-90.
Abstract: Taking its inspiration from the thought and action of Jean-Marie Tjibaou, this
essay proposes a comparative analysis of “articulated sites of indigeneity.” It
explores the advantages and limitations of translating North Atlantic cultural
studies approaches into island Pacific contexts. Stuart Hall’s articulation theory is
p roposed as a partial way beyond the stand-offs created by recent debates aro u n d
the “invention of tradition.” The dialectic of indigenous and diasporic histories,
roots and routes, is explored with regard to experiences of post- and neocolonial
interdependence and pragmatic sovereignty.
