In 1983, after the rise of the Red Power movement, Ward Churchill published a collection of essays in a book titled Marxism and Native Americans, which aimed to take up the debate about what Marxism and socialism bring to the struggle for Native Liberation. This exchange unfortunately featured Maoists and Stalinists who argued downright reactionary ideas and distorted Marxist theory regarding national self-determination for Indigenous peoples. Come to this talk to discuss what Marxism and socialism from below have to offer to the movement for Native Liberation in regards to upholding land, treaty, and cultural rights rights, ecological justice, fighting capitalist and industrial development, and understanding the roots of Native oppression.
