Everyday Acts of Resurgence: Lecture by Prof. Jeff Corntassel

Amidst ongoing, contemporary colonialism and new threats to Indigenous nations, we will discuss everyday acts of resurgent and the restoration of land-based practices within Indigenous communities today. By drawing on several comparative examples of resurgence from Cherokees in Kituwah, Lekwungen protection of camas (in Victoria, BC), and Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) revitalization of kalo, we will examine strategies for re-asserting self-determining authority of Indigenous nations and new pathways for representing themselves on their own terms.
