Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide
Andrea Smith
South End Press | 250 pp | $18.00
ISBN: 9780896087439

 
Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

The forward by Winona LaDuke, Ojibwe, sets the tone for Smith. She writes:


"Dignity, love and life. These principles ground social movements for justice, movements for change. We are people who are about creating, strengthening, and growing these movements."

 

"While the short book is filled with history of colonialism, boarding schools, lack of adequate judicial protections for Native women, and even a lesson on sovereignty, among other concerns important to Native peoples, Smith offers ideas on change in Native communities that may work towards safer communities that are free of sexual violence."

 

"Sadly, Native peoples have been acquainted with the subject matter far too long. I wish every member of the 113th Congress, especially those who oppose tribal jurisdictional provisions of legislation would take time to read "Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide" as a briefing book for an understanding of why this subject is important to and for our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and cousins, both in the United States and Canada."

Sarah LittleRedfeather Kalmanson's insight:

In an article where she spoke with VitaMN, the Minneapolis-based burlesque dancer, who identifies as half-Cherokee, uses what she calls "super stereotypical, cheesy, and ridiculous" Indian-themed costumes and props in her provocative performance. You can watch a tiny bit of it here from her audition with the X Factor
