G27 – Settlement: The relationship between first and subsequent peoples

Issue 27 in June 2022 will consider the relationship between peoples and cultures that differ according to original inhabitation of the land. This begins with the logic of colonisation, which in its extreme forms involved the genocide of Indigenous peoples. The survival and flourishing of these original cultures warrants a radically different logic.

  • How should the colonial act of dispossession be memorialised?
  • How can a relation to the land be expressed by those descended from settlers?
  • What can Indigenous peoples draw from in settler culture?
