Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law

Natsu Taylor Saito

NYU Press

There is no blueprint for the decolonization of a settler colonial state. To the extent that racial subordination is rooted in and perpetuates colonial relationships of domination and subordination, its eradication will require us to imagine how we can implement the right of all peoples to self-determination. This chapter suggests that the process will involve independent understandings of state, nation, and identity; the development of strategies to empower our communities; and engagement with or support of grassroots movements for self-determination.

Keywords:   colonialism, racism, identity, strategies, grassroots, community, decolonization
