How Hinduism is Used to Erase Tribal Identities in India
We have another article for you this week. This one is a summary of a paper by Virginius Xaxa laying out how academics and state officials have debated the language, religion and identity of indigenous communities in India over the last two hundred years. And how little that has involved actual indigenous people.
We wanted to share the paper because it’s a great introduction to how colonialism is ongoing with Indian state as the colonizers of indigenous communities – usurping their land, erasing their culture, and denying them autonomy.
We should have a new video out next week so keep an eye out for that!
