Description

This article examines the consequences of the dominant pathologizing narrative in social science and health scholarship of Indigenous human and physical geographies as unhealthy, diseased, vulnerable, and undergoing extraction for Indigenous well-being and the environment. The authors aim to unsettle this narrative about sickness in others and reframe it, using feminist, anti-colonial and anti-racist approach.
