about this item

To explain how and why indigeneity is a politics of potential that transcends neocolonial victimhood, O'Sullivan shows that indigeneity's relationships with discourses of reconciliation, self-determination, and sovereignty allow people to find ways of asserting their culturally framed political rights of prior occupancy. His unifying concern is with the intersection of ideas about the terms of indigenous peoples' belonging to the state, and the nature of their citizenship and participation in public life. He is also concerned, however, with preserving independent indigenous political authority. Distributed in North America by University of Chicago Press.
