POLI 330 - Indigenous Politics in Canada
This course explores the challenges and opportunities facing Indigenous Peoples in Canada today. It focuses on colonialism, capitalism, and globalization. How are Indigenous Peoples responding to challenges to and opportunities for self-determination at individual, collective, government, and Nation levels? What does activism, cultural revitalization, resurgence and reconciliation look like in the face of continued colonialism? This course puts an emphasis on issues affecting Indigenous bodies, lands, languages, cultures, and governance in Canada. Students will be asked to link broader themes to issues in the North, particularly as they relate to modern governance and self-determination.
