Indigenous Experience by Roger C. A. Maaka

Book Description

The Indigenous Experience: Global Perspectives introduces upper-level undergraduate students to some of the richness and heterogeneity of Indigenous cultures. Written by top scholars in the field, the readings explore common themes and experiences of indigeneity that persist across geographic borders. The first section examines the processes of conquest and colonization, while the second section addresses genocide and the problem of intention. The remaining readings interrogate the social constructs and myths promulgated by colonialism and explore the politics of resistance, struggles for justice, and future models of constructive engagement. The examples span the globe from the Indigenous nations of Turtle Island-such as the Plains Cree, the Haudenosaunee nation of Kahnawake, and the Metis-to the original peoples of the South Pacific, including Aboriginal Australians, the Maori of Aotearoa, and the Rapanui. Other Indigenous peoples represented in this volume include the Guarani, the Saami, the Ainu, and the Ogoni people. Combining historical narratives with complex conceptual issues and strong pedagogical support, The Indigenous Experience is a welcome addition to the literature of Indigenous Studies.
