ETHN 333 - Indigenous Decolonization

Indigenous studies scholars use the term “decolonization” to analyze the ways in which Indigenous peoples and their allies are using traditional Indigenous cultural teachings to advocate for social change within their communities and broader society. Key to this decolonizing framework is the idea that Indigenous cultural revitalization can help Indigenous communities protect their minds, bodies, and lands so that healthy Indigenous communities can be restored. In this class we will discuss definitions of decolonization and examine the ways in which Indigenous communities have used the term to guide their own cultural revitalization work across diverse settings such as: Maori and Hawaiian language nests, Indigenous museums, Indigenous cultural expression, and American Indian/Alaska Native legal studies.
