Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide
Author

ISBN
9780822360384
In this revolutionary text, prominent Native American studies scholar and activist Andrea Smith reveals the connections between different forms of violence-perpetrated by the state and by society at large-and documents their impact on Native women. Beginning with the impact of the abuses inflicted on Native American children at state-sanctioned boarding schools from the 1880s to the 1980s, Smith adroitly expands our conception of violence to include the widespread appropriation of Indian cultural practices by whites and other non-Natives; environmental racism; and population control. Smith deftly connects these and other examples of historical and contemporary colonialism to the high rates of violence against Native American women-the most likely to suffer from poverty-related illness and to survive rape and partner abuse. Smith also outlines radical and innovative strategies for eliminating gendered violence.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Andrea SmithPublisher: Duke University PressPublished: 04/24/2015ISBN: 9780822360384Pages: 264Weight: 0.70lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.50w x 0.60d
