Acknowledging Indigenous Knowledge Within My Settler Feminism
Keywords:Relationality, feminism, indigenous-settler relations, decolonialism, methodology, collaboration, self-reflection
This is a personal essay with an academic twist in which Karleen is searching to find methods to incorporate Indigenous relationality into her own feminism. While navigating her position as a white, settler, woman, Karleen acknowledges her complicated relationship with feminism and how she can involve some of the Indigenous knowledge she has gained while avoiding appropriating these thought systems. This piece invites the reader to re-consider knowledge binaries and encourages appropriate forms of collaborative feminism, while recogizing the potential messiness of the project.
