Indigenous Geographies

Indigenous Geographies is a fast-growing sub-discipline. Increasingly, Indigenous theory is weaved through course content in the department to examine how core geographic concepts such as space, place, territory, land, and the scale of the intimate are sites of colonial and racial dispossession and violence, as well as sites for decolonial thought and practice. Faculty specializing in Indigenous Geographies are committed to fostering ethical engagement and accountable and reciprocal research with Indigenous communities that ultimately contributes to Indigenous resurgence and self-determination.
