EP.053 Wielding Words Like Weapons With Ward Churchill Part 3 of 3

In the riveting conclusion of our three part series with acclaimed American Indian Movement activist-intellectual Ward Churchill about his venerable book Wielding Words Like Weapons: Selected Essays In Indigenism, 1995-2005, we discuss the effects of the settler colonial polity of Canada on American Indians.

We investigate this phenomenon by examining the chapter titled “Kizhiibaabinesik”. The chapter is a poignant dedication to brother Ward’s late wife Leah Renae Kelly.

This episode features music from:
• Conscientization 101– “Decolonize This? Properly Defining Settlers – Part 1” from our Musical Commentaries collection
• Wise Intelligent feat. Black Page – “By Design” from his album Ponzie

Be on the lookout for the forthcoming book from Ward Churchill available for pre-order, From a Native Son: Selected Essays in Indigenism, 1985–1995.
