Preview: Colonialism as ‘Self-Determination’ in the UN Declaration of Indigenous Rights

April 6, 2012 Leave a comment

Self-determination is a cornerstone of the entire concept of human liberation. Using the complete inversion of self-determining rights codified in the recent United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a lens, we will examine the extent to which we’ve lost our collective sense of this core principle, and what is need to restore not only our understanding of its meaning but of its proper place in our struggles for social, economic, and political justice. Led by Ward Churchill, at 10am on Wednesday, April 10th during the Art of Social Justice Conference. Don’t forget your program!
