In fact, the prevalence of liberal multicultural discourses today effectively works to maintain settler colonialism because they make it easy to assume that all minorities and ethnic groups are different though working toward inclusion and equality, each in its own similar and parallel way. Justice is often put in terms that coincide with the expansion of the settler state (see Scott Lauria Morgensen [2011] for a discussion of the compatibility of queer politics with white normativity and settler society). While Indigenous peoples do form important alliances with people of color, Indigenous communities’ concerns are often not about achieving formal equality or civil rights within a nationstate, but instead achieving substantial independence from a Western nationstate— independence decided on their own terms. The feminist concerns of white women, women of color, and Indigenous women thus often differ and conflict with one another. In other words, within the context of land and settler colonialism, the issues facing Indigenous women, as inseparable from the issues facing Indigenous peoples as a whole, are resolved via decolonization and sovereignty, not (just) parity.

The Women Ridding Sri Lanka of Landmines

Jalini, 30, gets to work in the paddy fields in the ‘Vanni’, the ‘rice-bowl’ region of northern Sri Lanka. But she isn’t harvesting rice; rather she’s on the hunt for landmines, a deadly legacy of the violent 26 year-long conflict between the Sri Lankan government and the Tamil Tigers…until the various hidden landmines are identified and removed, the community in Thunnukai can’t work here. Jalini and her fellow de-miners have already found a dozen mines in this field alone, and believe there are some more. Across the north of Sri Lanka, an unknown number of land mines litter the once productive landscape, threatening lives and livelihoods.”
