The Decolonial Study Group is a project of the IPSM Ottawa. We will be deepening and broadening our understanding and analysis of indigenous struggles for decolonization, social justice and revolution. We will be doing this through readings, workshops, oral presentations, movies and so on.

The June 13th Study Group will be a talk by Gord Hill on “500 Years of Indigenous Resistance”. The talk is part of a speaking tour and book launch for his new graphic book, “500 Years of Indigenous Resistance”.

After his talk there will be time for further discussion.

There are no core readings for this Decolonial Study Group.

However there are a number of articles and books that we encourage people to read:

The Decolonial Study Group is a project of the IPSM Ottawa. We will be deepening and broadening our understanding and analysis of indigenous struggles for decolonization, social justice and revolution. We will be doing this through readings, workshops, oral presentations, movies and so on.

The reading for the study group on Sunday, April 25 will focus on the Indian Act. The Indian Act is the fundamental piece of legislation through which the Canadian state seeks to control Indigenous People in Canada.

For this study group there will be core articles which we ask everyone to read, as well as additional articles and information for people who have the time and the interest to get deeper into the subject matter.

Core Readings:

Gender, Race, and the Regulation of Native Identity in Canada and the United States: An Overview by Bonita Lawrence

The essay is pretty long, so feel free to stop at “American Discourses of Indianess.” Of course, you`re encouraged to read the whole essay.

Part 2 – http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=411636956387&id=1256244881
