Many people learn about Indigenous politics only through the most controversial and confrontational news: the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s efforts to block the Dakota Access Pipeline, for instance, or the battle to protect Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, a site sacred to Native peoples. But most Indigenous activism remains unseen in the mainstream—and so, of course, does its significance.

J. Kēhaulani Kauanui set out to change that with her radio program Indigenous Politics. Issue by issue, she interviewed people who talked candidly and in an engaging way about how settler colonialism depends on erasing Native peoples and about how Native peoples can and do resist. Collected here, these conversations speak with clear and compelling voices about a range of Indigenous politics that shape everyday life.

J. Kēhaulani Kauanui is professor of American studies and anthropology, director of the Center for the Americas, and chair of the American studies department at Wesleyan University. She is author of Hawaiian Blood: Colonialism and the Politics of Sovereignty and Indigeneity and the forthcoming Paradoxes of Hawaiian Sovereignty: Land, Sex, and the Colonial Politics of State Nationalism. From 2007 to 2013, she was producer and host of the public affairs radio show Indigenous Politics from WESU in Middletown, Connecticut, where she currently coproduces a program on anarchist politics, Anarchy on Air, with a collective of students.
