A Motivating Vision

Published: October 28, 2012, Author: AngelSupport

In this video on the Psychophysical Effects of Environmental Racism, CWIS associate scholar Taiaiake Alfred discusses a motivating vision to reconnect indigenous peoples with their ancestral cultures that resonates as authentic, versus maintaining a colonial environment. Enumerating alienation from land, culture and community as rooted in dispossession, development and contamination, Professor Alfred advocates for restoration over compensation as a means of reestablishing spiritual, mental and physical health.
