Indigenous Experience by Roger C. A. Maaka

Book Description

The Indigenous Experience: Global Perspectives is the first book of its kind. In attempting to present the reader with some of the richness and heterogeneity of Indigenous colonial experiences, the articles featured in this provocative new volume constitute a broad survey of Indigenous peoples from around the globe. Examples are drawn from the North American nations of Canada and the United States; the Hispanic nations of Latin America; Australia; New Zealand; Hawaii and Rapanui from Oceania; from Northern Europe and the circumpolar region, Norway; and from the continent of Africa, an example from Nigeria.The readings focus on the broader issues of indigeneity in globalization. The book is organized by universal themes that stretch across national and geographic boundaries: * The processes of colonization that include conquest, slavery, and dependence * Colonialism, genocide, and the problem of intention * Social constructs, myths, and criminalization * The ongoing struggle to attain social justice, self-determination, and equity
