How is land, a complex material ecology that is assigned diverse and oftentimes conflicting meanings, central to Indigenous politics? In this course, Kanaka Maoli scholar-activist Dr. Uahikea Maile discusses how Indigeneity is not simply a political status or legal-identity category tied to territory, but that colonial dispossession and Indigenous practices of counterdispossession are at the heart of what constitutes Indigenous politics.
In a period of accelerating anthropogenic climate crisis on Earth, what might Indigenous movements to protect land teach us about how to live in more balanced relations together on a planet overwhelmed by the forces of both capitalism and colonialism?
