FIRST NATION PEOPLES AND CULTURES OF RESISTANCE
CROSSROADS IN CULTURAL STUDIES
Fourth International Conference
June 29 July 2, 2002, Tampere, Finland
As a part of the international biannual Crossroads in Cultural Studies conference we would like to organize a session that concentrates on discussing different aspects and forms of Indigenous resistance.
Indigenous peoples in countries and regions such as Australia, North America, New Zealand and Scandinavia have, for centuries, used different forms and strategies of resistance in struggles with their colonial and settler populations. This session will explore some of the myriad forms of resistance taken by (or 'about') Indigenous people, whether subtle or provocative, legal or illegal, cultural or purely political.
The session will be broad in scope, and we invite papers from indigenous studies, anthropology, sociology, history and geography. We are particularly interested in papers that explore the construction of identity through resistance and activism. We also welcome papers addressing such questions as how have resistance movements changed over time? How have people made use of space, place and scale? How have the changes brought about by an increasingly
'globalized' world changed indigenous resistance strategies?

affiliations and 150-word abstract.
