Lecture: “Afro-Descendents and Indigenous Rights”
Wed, April 2, 2014 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM • Hackett Room, SRH 1.313
The Native American and Indigenous Peoples Association (NAIPA) presents a talk by Associate Professor Juliet Hooker as part of their speaker series. According to Hooker, the proliferation of claims to indigeneity has led to debates about whether the category should be expanded to include some minority groups who now fall outside it, or whether a more restricted conception of indigeneity should continue to prevail. On of the questions Hooker addresses is, "If indigenous peoples are entitled to certain protections to which other minority groups are not entitled, how is this disparity justified?”
