Doctrines of dispossession


300 KSh


“Historians and academics agree that the
Colonisation of the New World saw
extreme expressions of racism – massacres,
forced-march relocations, the “”Indian wars””,
death by starvation and disease. Today, such
practices would be called ethnic cleansing
and genocide. What seems even more
appalling for contemporary minds is that
the subjugation of the native peoples of the
New World was legally sanctioned. ?Laws?
of ?discovery?, ?conquest? and ?terra nullius?
made up the ?doctrines of dispossession?,
according to Erica Irene Daes,
chairperson/rapporteur of the United
Nations Working Group on Indigenous
Populations, in a study on indigenous
peoples and their relationship to land.”
