When the UN adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2007, it brought the negative effect of globalization on the lives of Indigenous peoples to the center of public debate. The contributors to this innovative collection consider Indigenous peoples' experiences with and thoughts on globalization and the relationship between globalization and autonomy. Whether its focus is sea rights among Torres Strait Islanders, James Bay Cree co-governance, the transformation of East Cree spirituality, or the co-optation of linguistics by Mayan activists, each chapter opens a window to view how Indigenous people are engaging with and challenging globalization and Western views of autonomy and leads to a deeper understanding of postcolonial resistance movements.Mario Blaseris Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies, Memorial University, Newfoundland and Labrador.Ravi de Costais an assistant professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University.Deborah McGregoris an associate professor in the Department of Geography and Planning and the Aboriginal Studies program, University of Toronto.William D. Colemanis CIGI Chair in Globalization and Public Policy, Balsillie School of International Affairs, Waterloo.
