1. Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples

Author: by Linda Tuhiwai Smith
Zed Books
240 pages

View on Amazon

To the colonized, the term ‘research’ is conflated with European colonialism; the ways in which academic research has been implicated in the throes of imperialism remains a painful memory. This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research – specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as ‘regimes of truth.’ Concepts such as ‘discovery’ and ‘claiming’ are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonization of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being.

Now in its eagerly awaited second edition, this bestselling book has been substantially revised, with new case-studies and examples and important additions on new indigenous literature, the role of research in indigenous struggles for social justice, which brings this essential volume urgently up-to-date.

2. "I Am a Man": Chief Standing Bear's Journey for Justice

Author: by Joe Starita
St. Martin's Griffin

View on Amazon

In 1877, Chief Standing Bear’s Ponca Indian tribe was forcibly removed from their Nebraska homeland and marched to what was then known as Indian Territory (now Oklahoma), in what became the tribe’s own Trail of Tears. “I Am a Man” chronicles what happened when Standing Bear set off on a six-hundred-mile walk to return the body of his only son to their traditional burial ground.

Along the way, it examines the complex relationship between the United States government and the small, peaceful tribe and the legal consequences of land swaps and broken treaties, while never losing sight of the heartbreaking journey the Ponca endured. It is a story of survival-of a people left for dead who arose from the ashes of injustice, disease, neglect, starvation, humiliation, and termination.

On another level, it is a story of life and death, despair and fortitude, freedom and patriotism. A story of Christian kindness and bureaucratic evil. And it is a story of hope-of a people still among us today, painstakingly preserving a cultural identity that had sustained them for centuries before their encounter with Lewis and Clark in the fall of 1804.

Originally approved as a master of laws thesis bya respected Canadian university, this booktackles one of the most compelling issues of ourtimethe crime of genocideand whether in factit can be said to have occurred in relation to themany Original Nations on Great Turtle Island nowclaimed by a state called Canada.

It has beenhailed as groundbreaking by many Indigenousand other scholars engaged with this issue,impacting not just Canada but states worldwidewhere entrapped Indigenous nations faceabsorption by a dominating colonial state. Starblanket unpacks Canada’s role in the removalof cultural genocide from the GenocideConvention, though the disappearance of anOriginal Nation by forced assimilation wasregarded by many states as equally genocidal asdestruction by slaughter.

Did Canada seek totailor the definition of genocide to escape its owncrimes which were then even ongoing? Thecrime of genocide, to be held as such undercurrent international law, must address thecomplicated issue of mens rea (not just thecommission of a crime, but the specific intent todo so).

11. Theft Is Property!: Dispossession and Critical Theory (Radical Américas)

Author: by Robert Nichols
248 pages

View on Amazon

Drawing on Indigenous peoples’ struggles against settler colonialism, Theft Is Property! Reconstructs the concept of dispossession as a means of explaining how shifting configurations of law, property, race, and rights have functioned as modes of governance, both historically and in the present.

Through close analysis of arguments by Indigenous scholars and activists from the nineteenth century to the present, Robert Nichols argues that dispossession has come to name a unique recursive process whereby systematic theft is the mechanism by which property relations are generated.

In so doing, Nichols also brings long-standing debates in anarchist, Black radical, feminist, Marxist, and postcolonial thought into direct conversation with the frequently overlooked intellectual contributions of Indigenous peoples.

12. Death of a Whale: The Challenge of Anti-Whaling Activists and Indigenous Rights

Author: by Captain Paul Watson
256 pages

View on Amazon

A fascinating narrative about a historic dispute involving cultural entitlement, the sovereignty of whales, and international whaling agreements. This compelling, in-depth account documents how Sea Shepherd Conservation Society fights to defend and protect whales and other aquatic marine mammals from human predators who hunt and murder then under the false pretense of Indigenous rights.

In the process of discharging its duties, the organization has created global enemies and allies and, by necessity, has put its staff and vessels in harm’s way. Reading like an electrifying adventure tale, this true-life logbook reveals how members of one community, the Makah (located on Washington’s Olympic peninsula), attempted to circumvent international whaling laws by invoking outmoded cultural entitlements for the sole purpose of killing, rather than for sustenance or survival.

Tribal members, conservationists, and non-Indigenous Americans representing disparate points of view on the cultural appropriation of whaling rights contributed to the highly charged atmosphere of this incident. Supremely detailed and documented, this narrative replays the events as they unfolded. Throughout, Captain Watson’s deep respect for Indigenous traditions and rights never waver, even when they conflict with his own devotion to the sovereignty of whales.

13. Kayanerenkó:wa: The Great Law of Peace

Author: by Kayanesenh Paul Williams
472 pages

View on Amazon

Several centuries ago, the five nations that would become the Haudenosaunee Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca were locked in generations-long cycles of bloodshed. When they established Kayanerenk:wa, the Great Law of Peace, they not only resolved intractable coinflicts, but also shaped a system of law and government that would maintain peace for generations to come.

This law remains in place today in Haudenosaunee communities: an Indigenous legal system, distinctive, complex, and principled. It is not only a survivor, but a viable alternative to Euro-American systems of law. With its emphasis on lasting relationships, respect for the natural world, building consensus, and on making and maintaining peace, it stands in contrast to legal systems based on property, resource exploitation, and majority rule.

Although Kayanerenk:wa has been studied by anthropologists, linguists, and historians, it has not been the subject of legal scholarship. There are few texts to which judges, lawyers, researchers, or academics may refer for any understanding of specific Indigenous legal systems.

15. John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court

Author: by Richard Brookhiser
Basic Books
336 pages

View on Amazon

The life of John Marshall, Founding Father and America’s premier chief justice. In 1801, a genial and brilliant Revolutionary War veteran and politician became the fourth chief justice of the United States. He would hold the post for 34 years (still a record), expounding the Constitution he loved.

Before he joined the Supreme Court, it was the weakling of the federal government, lacking in dignity and clout. After he died, it could never be ignored again. Through three decades of dramatic cases involving businessmen, scoundrels, Native Americans, and slaves, Marshall defended the federal government against unruly states, established the Supreme Court’s right to rebuke Congress or the president, and unleashed the power of American commerce.

For better and for worse, he made the Supreme Court a pillar of American life. In John Marshall, award-winning biographer Richard Brookhiser vividly chronicles America’s greatest judge and the world he made.

16. The Beginning and End of Rape: Confronting Sexual Violence in Native America

Author: by Sarah Deer
Univ Of Minnesota Press
232 pages

View on Amazon

Winner of the Labriola Center American Indian National Book Award Despite what major media sources say, violence against Native women is not an epidemic. An epidemic is biological and blameless. Violence against Native women is historical and political, bounded by oppression and colonial violence.

This book, like all of Sarah Deer’s work, is aimed at engaging the problem head-onand ending it. The Beginning and End of Rape collects and expands the powerful writings in which Deer, who played a crucial role in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act in 2013, has advocated for cultural and legal reforms to protect Native women from endemic sexual violence and abuse.

Deer provides a clear historical overview of rape and sex trafficking in North America, paying particular attention to the gendered legacy of colonialism in tribal nationsa truth largely overlooked or minimized by Native and non-Native observers. She faces this legacy directly, articulating strategies for Native communities and tribal nations seeking redress.
