Indigenous Men and Masculinities: Legacies, Identities, Regeneration | Quill and Quire

Indigenous Men and Masculinities: Legacies, Identities, Regeneration | Quill and Quire | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Many activists, writers, and communities are addressing the nexus of race, sexuality, and gender, and the ways these things combine to form a person’s identity. Indigenous Men and Masculinities accomplishes this by discussing aboriginal masculinity from various points of view. Arguably, the book takes a similar approach to that of an intersectional feminist: countering the popular opinion that gender equality is a movement inherently of or for women, and acknowledging that people of all genders benefit from taking a critical look at the patriarchy. The timely text examines the ways colonization attempted to diminish aboriginal beliefs about gender, and as a result, aboriginal traditions and values from around the world. In the midst of our imperative nation-wide discussion about missing and murdered aboriginal women, the book urges us to address how colonization has affected aboriginal men and people of other genders by creating and enforcing a patriarchal society.
