Woodrow Lloyd Lecture - Allan Downey

Tue., Feb. 15, 2022 7:00 p.m.

Over the past several years there have been compelling calls for Indigenous communities to pursue a process of regeneration through the theory of 'resurgence' - a set of practices based in Indigenous intelligence systems through which regeneration can take place. Using a case study of Haudenosaunee Indigenous ironworkers in 1920's Brooklyn, Dr. Downey will argue that 'resurgent histories' can play an active role in this regeneration of Indigenous communities and their self-determination.

In particular, he will explore how ironworking and the formation of the community of 'Little Caughnawaga' became a nexus between Haudenosaunee family life, nationhood, and self-determination - particularly significant considering the ways Indigenous peoples were conceptually and physically removed from so-called 'modern' urban spaces and juxtaposed to perceptions of 'Indian authenticity.' And yet, Haudenosaunee citizens were at the centre of building these sites of 'modernity' while reformulating their own articulations of Haudenosaunee nationhood.
