Psychology, History, and Liberatory Narratives of the Indigenous and Descended on Colonized Lands
by Carson, John T., Psy.D., California Institute of Integral Studies, 2020, 212; 28261891
Abstract (Summary)

This paper is an effort at redressing the historical and intergenerational Indigenous struggle that has evolved in the United States, Mexico, and Central America since the initial conquests from Europe. It is a psychological study of the ongoing violence that involves a social, political, and historical inquiry. I use direct quotes from psychologists, historians, and community organizers, among other historical and contemporary figures, to construct a narrative about colonization and corporatization. The interdisciplinary survey originated with my academic study of contemporary relational psychoanalysis (Mitchell, 1993), the writings of Native American psychology educator Eduardo Duran (Duran, 2006; Duran & Duran, 1995), and the Zapatista rebellion in Chiapas, Mexico (Harvey, 1994; Midnight Notes Collective, 2001). The study has evolved to emphasize the observations of Salvadoran social psychologist Ignacio Martín-Baró (1994), and an analysis of historical anthologies (Keen, 1991; Nabokov, 1991; Weber, 1973) alongside writings based on direct experience of violence related to colonizing processes.
