Additional Details:

This class examines Indigenous resistance and resurgence movements in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. We will explore the political and social contexts in which these movements arose utilizing the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a framework for our analysis. Themes that will be analyzed are: state domination and threats to treaty, land and water rights; political mobilization, cultural resurgence and decolonizing struggles; indigenous women and resistance; food sovereignty and sustainable self-determination; the Idle No More movement – a “new” era of Indigenous-State relations? The goal of this class is to provide a deeper understanding of Indigenous experience and knowledge as it relates to decolonization, self-determination, and cultural revitalization and resurgence.
