Item description for Speaking Truth in the Teeth of Power: Lectures on Globalization, Colonialism, and Native North America by Ward Churchill...
This hard-hitting collection of twelve interviews and previously unpublished lectures delves deep into the current state of Native North America and expands on the "Indigenist" political perspective popularized by Professor Ward Churchill. He is now nationally known for his controversial remarks concerning the culpability of the functionaries administering US economic and military policies, and Speaking Truth in the Teeth of Power is the perfect antidote to the smear campaign surrounding On the Justice of Roosting Chickens. The book opens with a lengthy interview conducted by journalist Joshua Frank concerning Churchill's remarks and the back story to the hoopla, which became a national debate in the spring of 2005.
"Life in Occupied America," delivered in Berkeley, provides a heart-wrenching account of the current state of Native America, and shows the toll that more than five hundred years of genocide in North America has taken on all of its inhabitants. Additional chapters include: "Before Predator Came: Reflections on Indigenous Reality," "Castles Built on Sand: An Indigenist View of Federal Indian Law," "The Next 500 Years," and "The Relationship of Genocide, Colonization, and Resistance in North America." Speaking Truth in the Teeth of Power is culled from lectures delivered at Ohio State, The Brecht Forum, Concordia University, and national conferences throughout North America.
