Indigenous Women's Cultural Production and Political Activism in Taiwan: The Cases of Four Indigenous Women
Presented by Drs. Skaya Siku and Yi-Chun Tricia Lin
Two Taiwanese feminists, one indigenous (Skaya Siku) and the other Han-settler colonial and diasporic (Yi-Chun Tricia Lin), present a complex picture of Taiwan Indigenous women, their struggles, as well as their triumphs, in a Chinese settler colonial society that never ceased its colonization project of Indigenous peoples.
Co-hosted by VIUFA's Human Rights and International Solidarity, and the Status of Women.
