In this segment of my discussion with Indigenous artist, activist, and author Gord Hill, I ask Gord to provide much needed context on how radical Leftist theory and practice (for the most part, European in origin) increasingly works in tandem with anti-colonial Indigenous resistance movements across the so-called Americas, from North to South. As Gord lays out in this discussion, various strains of resistance — anti-colonial, ecological, anti-capitalist, anti-fascist, egalitarian — stand to benefit from learning and working with each other -- and in great part, this is already happening. We also discuss that while different, each of these respective strains of resistance utilize a similar diversity of tactics in resistance to the State, the logic of Capital, and the Settler-Colonial culture that dominates the land up to the present moment.
Gord Hill, who also goes under the pen name Zig Zag, is a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw nation along the Northwest Coast. Lord is an indigenous activist, anarchist, and artist, and is the author and illustrator of numerous books/graphic novels, including ‘500 Years of Indigenous Resistance,’ ‘The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book,’ ‘The Anti-Capitalist Resistance Comic Book,’ and ‘The Antifa Comic Book.’
