Abstract

I coined the term ‘decolonial era’ to suggest that Indigenous Peoples resist subjugation and socialization to the dominant political hegemonies (Doxtater 2004). In many instances the neo-colonial view promoted by settler governments traps us in the 1800s.  Escaping the 1800s means decolonizing an imposed identity and those of us who escaped the 1800s find something strange. Many of our innovations and inventions have been adapted to the contemporary world.
