Synopsis

One of the casualties of the expansion of the culture of capitalism for Indigenous peoples is cultural diversity related to the profound cultural incompatibilities between indigenous peoples and the culture of capitalism and the need of the nation-state to ensure political authority and control over economic resources desired by corporations or the nation-state itself. This course then, examines the historical and contemporary impact of the Nation State on small-scale Indigenous societies around the world with a focus on the capitalist system. Broad theoretical frameworks relating to global western expansion as well as specifics relating to the effects of the culture of capitalism are explored.
