A century and a half of state-engineered colonization has produced a reconciliation discourse that relies on the state as a collaborator. Yet, Indigenous social systems and social movements continue to challenge statist efforts towards Indigenous erasure. This lecture will examine how reconciliation is oriented across competing interests and the ever solving of the Indian Problem.
