podcast: palestine and the struggle of indigenous peoples


Join your host, J Kēhaulani Kauanui, for Part I of a two-part episode that focuses on the Palestinian struggle as an indigenous people’s struggle. How is indigeneity contested in the Israeli state project? How do the frameworks of settler colonialism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide work in Zionist projects of occupation? What are the parallels between the colonization of Native North America and Palestine? What about Zionist Jewish bids for indigenous status? How might the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples be used to mobilize resistance? The show will feature community presentations made at a recent event in recognition of Israeli Apartheid Week, “Palestine and the Struggle of Indigenous Peoples” by Gale Courey Toensing (Palestinian American staff reporter for Indian Country Today Media Network) and Stan Heller (Chairperson of the Middle East Crisis Committee). Original air-date: 3-29-11.
