This is part two and the final part of our conversation with Mylan Tootoosis. Since we defined a lot of concepts and terms in episode one, part two explores those ideas and their applications. We dive into racism and white supremacy, how colonization erases and rewrites Native culture, double consciousness as a way to understand code-switching and white gaze, land-based education (education outside of the classroom), oral tradition, pressures of being nonwhite, and living with the Zapatistas.
When we think of the Left, we think of the Marxist to Anarchist binary. Some might generously even include liberals. However, with these two episodes, we'd like to illuminate how anti-imperialism/colonialism is a primary radical tradition with overlaps to the European radical traditions, rather than a subset. Capitalism is a problem, but the oppression of racism, imperialism, and colonialism are timeless.
