Re: Comparative Indigeneities

Good luck on your course.

My own teaching is mainly about indigenous peoples in Asia. You could bring something in as contrast to the usual, tired West-and-the-Rest formula. In Asia, the picture is often very similar to the US, Australia etc. (indigenous peoples' land is stolen; they are discriminated against; their languages discouraged, etc.), BUT there is often the striking difference, that the very "indigeneity" of those peoples is denied -- because that would give them a platform and a voice, distinct from the majority that's oppressing them.
