Turtle Island – Stolen Land

Decolonization in the settler colonial context must involve the repatriation of land… Until stolen land is relinquished, critical consciousness does not translate into action that disrupts settler colonialism.

– Eve Tuck and K. W. Yang, “Decolonization is Not a Metaphor”

  1. This is just a really bad map. Reserves in Canada are not considered sovereign, but rather land held in trust by the crown for the use of “Indians.” Likewise, Indigenous “tribes” in America are considered wards of the state.

    Even if Indigenous settlements were treated as sovereign by these settler colonial states, there are many that are missing from this map.
