Sussex Library of Study – First Nations and the Colonial Encounter

The past three decades have witnessed a rise in the self-assertiveness of First Nations peoples across the globe. This has brought indigenous histories into the mainstream of public and academic life, often in controversial manner. Indigenous claim-making poses challenges to conventional interpretations of indigenous histories, especially in the treatment of the early colonial encounter itself, and indigenous groups have made demands for formal apologies by the State for the felt abuses of colonial rule.

The series will address themes such as: land tenure and land rights; violence and atrocity (including discussion of genocide); emigration, nomadism and forced translocation (e.g. reservations); miscegenation; frontier encounters and mission settlements; the imposition of Christianity and syncretism; strategies of accommodation and adaptation; resistance, rebellion, and revitalization; old and new forms of political organization and communication; women and gender under colonial rule; education, literacy, and the emergence or transformation of native literatures and histories (oral and written).
