Example text

It is the subjective indigenisation of what has typically been conceived of as objective, whether that be time, history or space, that will challenge the notion of one monolithic knowledge. Indigenous truth here is not accidental or objective, it does not come at the conclusion of an argument; it is a requisite of Indigenous subjectivity. Ironically, the acceptance that truth is amorphous must be an underpinning canon of the developing discipline of Indigenous Studies (discipline, in this sense, meaning an ambiguous space where certain knowledges are tacit and taken for granted, whilst other knowledges are to be challenged, honed and produced).

Colonialism in the Maritimes of Eastern Canada The area of geographical focus for this chapter, the Maritimes, encompasses much of the southern coastline of Eastern Canada and includes the provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
