How should we repair the damage wrought by the Doctrine of Discovery? Reflecting on Fanon, Marx, Leanne Simpson, and others, Coulthard warns us against the politics of recognition; that is, the practice of framing reconciliation as the accommodation of Indigenous "cultural" rights within the legal and political framework of the Canadian state. Settler colonialism is primarily about "access to territory." Therefore, it's critical that Indigenous nations and Settler allies pursue a politics of resistance and reparations, rooted in particular Indigenous traditions, that seeks tangible returns in power, authority, and land. It's a theoretically rich manifesto.
