In fourth world/indigenous nations, women have generally been held in higher regard than their counterparts in patriarchal states throughout history. This is visible in today's global social movements--most notably the climate and environmental justice, and food sovereignty movements. They are based in the traditional knowledge systems of indigenous peoples, and have culminated in discourses of indigenous feminism.
This course is design to familiarize students with historical and current social realities of political activism among fourth world and indigenous women, with a particular focus on Indigenous women in the US, Canada, and Hawaii. Learners will be introduced to the concept of feminist theory and indigenous feminism in particular as a basis for understanding the context of indigenous female activism. The course is divided into three sections: feminism(s); activism, social movements, and politics; and issues. Through the integration of these categories you will learn how indigenous histories, cultures, politics, and activism are woven together into the seamless whole that are the lives of indigenous women.
