Exploring Indigenous Feminist Relational Sovereignty: Exploring Indigenous Feminist Relational Sovereignty: Feminist Conversations, Non-colonizing Solidarities, Inclusive Nations
AbstractThis article juxtaposes Indigenous feminist perspectives on sovereignty with related ideas of feminist scholars Jacqui Alexander and Nandita Sharma in order to further feminist theorizations of sovereignty and nationhood that reject neo-liberalism, and to forge a "non-colonizing feminist solidarity" with Indigenous peoples, particularly Indigenous women, in their struggles for self-determination. Résumé Cet article met en juxtaposition les perspectives féministes indigènes sur la souveraineté avec les idées reliées aux érudites féministes Jacqui Alexander et Nandita Sharma afin de faire avancer les élaborations de théories sur la souveraineté et sur l'esprit national qui rejette le néo-libéralisme, et de forger une ``solidarité féministe non-colonisatrice`` avec les peuples autochtones, particulièrement les femmes autochtones, dans leurs luttes pour leur autodétermination.
