Description

Racism, Colonialism, and Indigeneity in Canada: A Reader is a unique collection featuring 27 essays (previously published) written by Indigenous scholars exploring the nature of racism and colonialism in the lives of Indigenous people in Canada. Organized into themes such as family relations, criminal justice, territorial rights, identity, citizenship, and relations with settler colonialists provides insight into what can be done to address historic wrongdoings, while also showing how much can be gained by working across differences, revitalizing original partnerships and agreements, and coming together collectively as Canadians to combat racism. Both editors identify as Six Nations band members and both teach sociology at the university level. This interdisciplinary approach to creating a reader about racism and colonialism is heightened as the perspective throughout is an Indigenous one. Each chapter includes an introduction and conclusion, discussion questions, suggestions for activities, list of suggested readings, websites, films, and a glossary. The inside front cover features a coloured map of Indigenous languages in Canada. Highly recommended.
