Scott L. Morgensen ´ Spaces between Us text

We are all caught up in one another Scott Lauria Morgensen asserts we who live in settler societies and our interrelationships inform all that these societies touch Native people live in relation to all non Natives amid the ongoing power relations of settler colonialism despite never losing inherent claims to sovereignty as indigenous peoples Explaining how relational distinctions of “Native” and “settler” define the status of being “ueer” Space Spaces Between Us has a lot to offer within the very specific conversation Morgensen is having but the book was perhaps overly academic to start and also a little narrow in subject for my particular interests The author focuses on a couple of very specific incidents a zine a small movement a social event and doesn't set them within the context of the broader concepts heteronormativity in settler society that he discusses in the introduction At least not in a way that seemed broadly helpful If one is interested in specific examples of appropriation of Native culture by specifically white gay settler men readers will find this book uite interesting in that regard

Spaces between UsS between Us argues that modern ueer subjects emerged among Natives and non Natives by engaging the meaningful difference indigeneity makes within a settler societyMorgensen’s analysis exposes white Spaces between MOBI #233 settler colonialism as a primary condition for the development of modern ueer politics in the United States Bringing together historical and ethnographic cases he shows how US ueer projects became non Native and normatively white by co A really good book deeply deeply thought provoking once you get used to the dense language Would have rated it higher but I think I need to revisit it and not read it over the course of an entire semester The beginning chapters especially are important and I would have loved them to be a touch accessible so I felt comfortable using them in an undergraduate class but I'm not sure I can do that We'll see as I will be revisiting them for sure But really really important work here and I hope it opens up space for ueer settlers like myself to deeply consider how our sexualities and gender identities are tied up in settler colonialism
