Join Scott L. Morgensen for the New York City debut of Spaces between Us : Queer Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Decolonization. February 23, 7 - 9 pm, at Bluestockings Bookstore, 172 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002.
How does settler colonialism shape queer politics? How have Two-Spirit activists called queer / trans non-Natives to challenge racism and settler colonialism and to support Indigenous sovereignty?
In Spaces Between Us, Morgensen interprets the historical interrelationships - or “conversations” - that have connected Native Two-Spirit and non-Native GLBTQ people in a white settler society. At once a critique of queer settler colonialism and a call to radical alliance work, Spaces between Us presents a white settler critic answering Two-Spirit activists by centering conversation among queer / trans people about Indigenous decolonization.
