Decolonizing Solidarity
Decolonizing Solidarity: Dilemmas and Directions for Supporters of Indigenous Struggles | Clare Land
1 post | 2 to read
In this highly original and much-needed book, Clare Land interrogates the often fraught endeavours of activists from colonial backgrounds seeking to be politically supportive of Indigenous struggles. Blending key theoretical and practical questions, Land argues that the predominant impulses which drive middle-class settler activists to support Indigenous people cannot lead to successful alliances and meaningful social change unless they are significantly transformed through a process of both public political action and critical self-reflection. Based on a wealth of in-depth, original research, and focussing in particular on Australia, where - despite strident challenges - the vestiges of British law and cultural power have restrained the nation's emergence out of colonising dynamics, Decolonizing Solidarities provides a vital resource for those involved in Indigenous activism and scholarship.

I have never celebrated #CanadaDay (or the #FourthofJuly) and I don‘t know any Indigenous person who has. It has always been a day of mourning for us.

There are tons of resource lists being shared now more than ever. Search them out. I will add that it‘s not enough to just read Indigenous authors. #DecolonizeYourShelves but also decolonize the way you read, analyze and review books. Racism is still a huge problem within bookish communities.
