In many post-settler nation states including the United States of America, New Zealand and Australia, the cultural practices of many groups of Indigenous people have been intentionally and non-intentionally disrupted by the effects of colonisation. In this unit we explore some specific examples of this phenomenon and consider the necessary political conditions for its emergence and development. We also consider the politico-cultural effects of cultural renaissance on the people who practice it and on the nation state which seeks to contain it. -- Course Website
