Land Claims, Reconciliation, and the Resurgence of Indigenous Nationhood

Thursday, 2 June 2016
Presenter/s: 
Prof Gerald Taiaiake Alfred

The presentation will detail the shortcomings of land claims processes and the limitations of “reconciliation” in Canada as a framework for advocating for justice and decolonizing the relationship between Indigenous peoples and the state. It will outline an alternative vision and set of strategic objectives of struggle that have emerged in response, framed as Indigenous Resurgence, which focus on restoring Indigenous presences on the land and water, reinvigorating language and traditional cultural practices, and strengthening Indigenous nationhood through the decolonization of family and inter-personal relationships.
