The IAFA Imagining Indigenous Futurisms Award winner and short list was announced during the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts Conference on March 18.
The Imagining Indigenous Futurism Award recognizes emerging authors who use science fiction to address issues of Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination.
This year’s winner is:
- Telling the Soul of Mars by Alina Pete
The other works on the shortlist were:
- The Tangle by Rae Mariz
- The Good One by Allanah Hunt
- Spirit Medicine by Gina McGuire
Is this just an annual award and if a new author published a new book in 2022, would it be open for nomination for next year?
