Settler-Colonialism and Genocide Policies in North America

In this lecture, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States," discusses the reality of former US policy and practice towards Indigenous Peoples not merely as “racist” or “discriminatory” deeds but as precise occurrences of genocide.
Noting that Canadian history holds a similar--albeit less severe--legacy of genocide, Dunbar-Ortiz demonstrates how the United States carried out all five acts of genocide as identified in Article 2 of The Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG).
Razor sharp #truthbombs are sprinkled throughout.
