The Red Deal: Extended Interview with Red Nation Members About an Indigenous Plan to Save Our Earth
On Earth Day, we host an extended conversation with two of the two dozen Indigenous scholars behind the new book, “The Red Deal: Indigenous Action to Save Our Earth,” described as “not simply a response to the Green New Deal nor a 'bargain' with the elite and powerful. It is a deal with the humble people of the earth; an affirmation that colonialism and capitalism must be overturned for human and other-than-human life to live with dignity. It is a pact with movements for liberation, life, and land for a new world of peace and justice that must come from below and to the left.” In Albuquerque, Melanie Yazzie is a co-founder of The Red Nation, a grassroots Indigenous liberation organization, and chair of the board of directors for Red Media, an imprint of Common Notions. Yazzie is a citizen of the Navajo Nation and an assistant professor of Native American studies and American studies at the University of New Mexico. We are also joined from Toronto by Uahikea Maile, a Kanaka Maoli scholar and activist from Maunawili, O’ahu. He is also a member of The Red Nation and an assistant professor of Indigenous politics at the University of Toronto.
