"Our Blood is Currency: Indigenous Death, Economics and Resurgence"

Friday, April 14, 2017 at 12:00pm

American Studies Seminar Room, 404 Morrill Hall

Prof. Dian Million (American Indian Studies, University of Washington): "Indigenous deaths are scalar, occurring on many levels, from our bodies to the worlds we create. In this talk, I relate the genocidal as ecocide, the outcomes of neoliberalism, abandonment, and struggle in our Indigenous places. Still, in the midst of the ongoing close policing of our presence, Indigenous resurgence poses an ontological and epistemic challenge to any Anthropocene 'business as usual'."
