Indigenous women, queers, trans- and Two Spirit people have been at the forefront of resistance struggles, most recently at Standing Rock and at Mauna Kea fighting to keep the Thirty Meter Telescope from its summit. Their voices, along with Indigenous queer and feminist scholars, have been working to understand gendered violences, land dispossession, and cultural appropriation. This class will consider how those Indigenous feminist, queer, and Two Spirit scholars have theorized gender, sexuality, race, and colonialism alongside queer and feminist of color critiques toward accountable visions of resistance. We will read works by Indigenous feminist, scholars, and activists from the nineteenth-century to the twenty-first to consider how indigeneity challenges how gender and sexuality are experienced in the context of ongoing settler colonialism.
