Abstract
This special issue of Comparative American Studies, ‘Red Power at 50: Re-Evaluations and Memory,’ aims to open a period of reflection on and discussion of the historical role and memory of Red Power as a movement for Native North American rights that not only shook the U.S. domestic scene, but also built transnational alliances and ultimately advanced a global Indigenous human rights régime. The articles in this issue offer evaluations and reinterpretations of the struggle’s historical importance, its international dimension, but also its limitations.
