Red Intersectionality and Violence-informed Witnessing Praxis with Indigenous Girls

Natalie Clark

Keywords: colonialism; girls’ groups; resistance; trauma; wellness

Abstract

In this article I will centre the historic and ongoing resistance of Indigenous

girls to violence through colonial policies and practices. I challenge conventional

intersectionality scholarship by foregrounding anti-colonialism and Indigenous

sovereignty/nationhood. Using examples from my own work, I illustrate the manifestation

of colonial power and persistent resistance in the lives of Indigenous

girls. Through these stories, I will discuss the everyday practices of witnessing and

resisting the discourses of risk. Red intersectionality will be offered as one way

forward in relation to my ongoing work on violence.
