Indigenous sovereignty as an area of study is usually analysed by legal scholars and political theorists who locate it within a judicio-political framework. This article is offered as a work in progress to stimulate sociological thinking about Indigenous sovereignty in a different way. The article considers recent work in Whiteness studies in Australia and abroad, as well as literature using Foucault’s idea of the relationship between race, sovereignty and war.
