Honours Bachelor of Arts (Indigenous Learning Major) (TB) - Resistance and Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous Learning 3233 Resistance and Indigenous Peoples
The changing relationship between Indigenous Peoples and settler society is examined with a special focus on Indigenous mobilization and its consequences. Topics include colonization and decolonization, political mobilization and resistance, land-use and occupancy, cultural rights and language protection. Examples such as the Chiapas experience in Mexico, the Achuar in Peru, the Circassian in Russia as well as the Ojibway, Mohawk and Cree in Canada, will be presented as case studies of Indigenous resistance. So too will the activity of the American Indian Movement, the Zapatistas and the Tupac Katari. Comparative discussion of direct action versus negotiated settlement will be one of the cornerstones of the course.
