How do we understand relations between Black and Indigenous political formations and movements? What impasses arise in thinking about them together? This paper suggests how speculation offers conceptual and ethical resources for engaging these questions. Mark Rifkin is a professor of English at UNC Greensboro and is the author of Beyond Settler Time: Temporal Sovereignty and Indigenous Self-Determination.
