The chapter considers three challenges that Indigenous perspectives provide for Southern criminology: the importance of understanding colonialism and the coloniality of power; the role of Indigenous knowledges, epistemologies and methodologies; and the political questions that Indigenous peoples pose for settler colonial states. The chapter argues that criminology needs to be reconfigured to overcome its historical roots, its epistemological blind spots and its politically compromised positions.
