Example text

Hayward outlines activist and author Gerald Taiaiake Alfred’s view, for instance, of an impasse between Aboriginal nation citizenry and being a citizen of the Canadian nation. Thus, for Indigenous peoples, the interface between self-governance and citizenship within the colonial nation predicates a political identity that determines how Indigenous people both represent themselves and are represented by others, politically and symbolically. As the authors in this section demonstrate, one of the primary facets of Indigenous Studies has been the study of the political and symbolic terrain of colonial societies, including the scoping of methods of resistance appropriate to various genealogies of subjugation and the understanding of resistance teleologically.

The main cause of this movement was the gender discrimination that applied to status and band membership for non-status Indian women. Status Indian women who married non-status men (whether Métis, Inuit or non-Aboriginal altogether) automatically lost their status under the Indian Act and, with it, various privileges (meagre though they were). Conversely, males categorised as status Indians faced no penalties upon their marriage to a non-status woman (whether ‘white’ or otherwise). 19 Banishment from Indian reserves resulted in women moving into off-reserve communities.

Rather, it is towards a collective determined by issues of Indigenous existentialism, where Indigenous situatedness is emphasised, including embodied notions of place and culture that dismiss attempts to locate Indigenous people in the exotic other. Any transcultural Indigenous collective thus needs to be based on difference and contradiction. This situated fluidity in what it means to be ‘Indigenous’ should underpin Indigenous Studies as a discipline above all else. The space imagined here therefore needs necessarily to be a place of relativity, multiplicity of truth and ambiguity, as opposed to a location that promotes singularity of truth and conclusion.
