What is Indigeneity? What does it have to do with race? How does Indigeneity translate across the borders of settler states? How does it intersect with gender, sexuality and other categories of identity?

Indigenous Intersections is a monthly reading group that critically examines Indigeneity across the North American contexts of Canada, the United States and Mexico. Each month, interested faculty and graduate students are invited to join us to read and discuss a common text that investigates an aspect of Indigenous life, identity, politics and sovereignty.

Reading selection for January 2019: Joanne Barker’s Native Acts: Law, Recognition and Cultural Authenticity (2011).
