Indigenous literary criticism has, to date, focused on human stories, histories, and politics, which is understandable given the catastrophic impacts of colonialism. Yet many of those impacts resulted from colonial efforts to undermine self-determination through attacks on the interspecies relationships central to Indigenous economies and worldviews.

#IdleNoMore in Historical Context

Dr. Glen Coulthard, a member of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and an assistant professor in the UBC First Nations Studies Program and the Department of Political Science, has written a short analysis of the historical context that led to the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) in an effort to get a better understanding of the transformative political possibilities in the present moment.
