Spaces open in AIS 475 - Indigenous Resistance and Resurgence Movements

AIS 475: "Indigenous Resistance and Revitalization Movements in the United States, Canada, and Mexico."
Tuesdays and Thursdays
5 credits, I&S
Instructor: Charlotte Cote

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 following themes to frame our analysis: 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; and the Idle No More movement.  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.
