Books: On Being Here to Stay

review by Neil Vallance | September 11, 2014

Michael Asch has enjoyed a distinguished career as an anthropologist and original thinker. In his writing he wrestles with the big questions of Indigenous/settler relations, proposes original answers, and argues his points with elegance and logic. His work is always a pleasure to read. The book under review represents his most recent thinking about a problem that has preoccupied him for thirty years.

What's New: What is Settler Colonialism?

by Maya Mikdashi | September 11, 2014

Almost every year, for the week of the Fourth of July, my family makes the twelve-hour drive from their homes in Michigan to what they call their 'farm'. The land has been in my family since the 1854 treaty between the Ojibwe and the United States created the Bad River Tribe Reservation on Lake Superior. My family has papers 'proving' their rights to land that borders Bear Creek, but according to the treaty the U.S. government retains ultimate ownership over the land and has leased it to Native Americans and their heirs 'forever'.

Bullet #1033: Past and Present: Malcolm X in Ferguson

by Dimitris Fasfalis | September 9, 2014

Protests, riots and police violence in Ferguson, Missouri, last August have laid bare "America's racial rift" says The Guardian Weekly. Mainstream opinion-makers have tended to interpret the Michael Brown case and the protests that followed his death in terms of police brutality, racial tensions, and legal responsibility (of the shooting of unarmed 18-year-old African American, Michael Brown), showing these events as specific to American society.
