Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis describes how heteropatriarchal, settler colonialism impacted Indigenous communities' systems in power and control, particularly with the American Indian Movement during the 1960s-1970s. Further, the gendered divides this created within the American Indian Movement are described. The murder of Anna Mae Aquash is revisited as an act of gendered violence within the American Indian Movement. The implications of her murder and ensuing trial had on Native communities as upholding a heteropatriarchal model of control and dominance are also discussed. My personal connection to this story is woven into this thesis using Indigenous based methodology. The purpose of this study was to re-read our recent histories through Indigenous epistemologies to learn how to heal from historical trauma as Indigenous communities.
