Explores Indigenous challenges to settler colonialism in Australia, Canada and New Zealand from the nineteenth century to the present.

Activist Histories explores Indigenous responses to settler colonialism from the nineteenth century to the present. It examines the nature and impacts of settler colonialism within a global context. We look at settler colonialism in Asia, the Pacific, as well as North and South America. Through case studies of key protests and movements we will explore the historical roots of contemporary Indigenous activism, forms of mobilisation, and protest strategies including political organising, petitions, direct action, and international appeals.

This paper is essential for students who major in History, and it also complements studies in a wide range of subjects, including Māori, Pacific and Indigenous Studies, Law, Politics, Anthropology, Sociology, English, and Geography.
