Grace Dillon is a professor in the Indigenous Nations Studies Program at Portland State University and editor of Walking the Clouds: An Anthology of Indigenous Science Fiction,
which collects stories from the original inhabitants of North America
together with stories from Africa, the Middle East, the Pacific and
other parts of the world.
Dillon introduced the term ‘Indigenous Futurism’, which like Afrofuturism includes different disciplines of art: “Writers of Indigenous futurisms … change the perimeters of sf. Liberated from the constraints of genre expectations … they have room to … stretch the boundaries; and, perhaps most significantly, to reenlist the science of indigeneity.”
