Auteur: Churchill, Ward
Titel: Acts of Rebellion
For Native Americans, such institutions as Columbus Day or the Washington Redskins are bitter reminders that they live in a world where their identity is still fodder for white society. "The law has always been used as toilet paper by the status quo where American Indians are concerned," writes Churchill in Acts of Rebellion, a collection of his most important writings from the past twenty years. Churchill stands at the forefront of American Indian concerns, from land issues to the American Indian Movement, from government repression to the history of genocide. Churchill, one of the most respected writers on Native American issues, lends a strong and radical voice to the American Indian cause. `Acts of Rebellion' shows how the most basic civil rights' laws put into place to aid all Americans failed miserably, and continue to fail, when put into practice for Native Americans. Seeking to convey what has been done to Native North America, Churchill examines Native Americans' struggles for property and freedom, their resistance and repression, cultural issues, and radical Indian ideologies.
