AIS 130: Environmental Justice, Racism, and Settler Colonialism

(3 units)

Explores the different articulations of environmental justice (EJ) for American Indian people compared to EJ for other communities. Situating settler colonialism as the origin of environmental injustice, genocide, and land dispossession as its constituent components are viewed as an ongoing process and structure that keeps American Indian and Alakan Native people locked into struggles against extractive industries and a racist legal system as mechanisms of the capitalist settler state. Highlights Indigenous resistance and resiliency.
