This seminar will focus on forms of resistance within Native American and Indigenous communities towards settler invasion. It will examine Indigenous resistance, cultural resurgence movements, political mobilization, and decolonizing struggles in the United States and Mexico. e.g. Wounded knee occupation at Pine Ridge, #NODAPL movement and other forms of Indigenous resistance such as language revitalization efforts and preservation of oral histories. This seminar will also include a guided tour of the Newberry’s current exhibition, What is the Midwest?, by one of the co-curators, Analú López.
