Despite advances in the international legal protection of Indigenous peoples, contemporary state-centric international law continues to subordinate Indigenous peoples by denying them sovereignty. International law-making in the area is circumscribed by state sovereignty and state prerogatives, and this requires the corresponding silencing of Indigenous peoples, such that even as they assert their goals and aspirations, international legal institutions do not hear them. Examining the development of the Indigenous right to self-determination through the lens of epistemic violence, this article proposes that international law must be radically reimagined if we are to create an equitable international community between Indigenous peoples and states. Such a radical reimagination would involve making space for Indigenous or Fourth World Approaches to International Law.
