This chapter argues that the behavior of Anglo settler states and Indigenous Peoples within a logic of sovereignty is discordant with prevailing international relations theory instead of engaging bonds of relational friendship. Where mainstream international relations theory prioritizes a territorial space, this chapter finds that both settler states and Indigenous Peoples pull instead from cooperative communities to securitize. For Indigenous Peoples, transnational and domestic solidarity movements fight against imposed borders and transnational disempowerment, and for settler states, allies work together to enhance settler power against Indigenous Peoples. The chapter notes that the behavior of neither settler states nor Indigenous Peoples fits into Realist, Liberal, or Constructivist frameworks, exposing a gap filled by this chapter's emphasis on friendship relations.
