Red Nation Rising : From Border Town Violence to Native LiberationEstes, Nick, Yazzie, Melanie, Denetdale, Jennifer Nez More by this author...£16.99
Border towns are white-dominated towns and cities that operate according to the same political and spatial logics as all other American towns and cities. To this day, the US settler state continues to wage violence on Native life and land in these spaces out of desperation to eliminate the threat of Native presence and complete its vision of national consolidation "from sea to shining sea." This explains why some of the most important Native-led rebellions in US history originated in border towns and why they are zones of ongoing confrontation between Native nations and their colonial occupier, the United States. Red Nation Rising marks the first effort to tell these entangled histories and inspire a new generation of Native freedom fighters to return to border towns as key front lines in the long struggle for Native liberation from US colonial control.
