How might we build genuine, novel, authentic and radical futures that empower communities to imagine, speculate, and ignite their dreams and visions of what can be? How might we link and sense make of the narratives of our ancestors, us and our stories and our future children and kin to innovate and strategize better today? Are there indigenous way-finding tools that we could learn and use to make foresight practice more robust, heterogenous, ethical, intergenerational-driven, plural, inclusive and diverse? What is indigeneity in futurity? What is indigenous foresight exactly? Can communities, whatever that might be, activate their own futures without the need of an expert? Are there indigenous foresight participatory tools and methods that we can use that allow for a foresight conversation that is rooted in culture and transformative memories of the future?

The next APF Friends of Foresight: Spiral to the Stars, wishes to reveal, discover, re-think and re-imagine professional foresight and futures thinking concepts and practice as we know it today. By providing a space to unpack and discuss indigenous narratives, tools, and inspirations, we open ourselves to heterogeneity and plurality of insights, experiences and stories on how futures and foresight are emerging and applied to different settings, cultures, societal and organizational contexts. The Spiral to the Stars session reflects on indigeneity in futurity, as friends share their perspectives, views, and experiences on the subject.
