The Intersection of Colonialism and Gender & Sexuality

By Diversify Our Narrative 2021

In this lesson, students will analyze the intersection between colonialism and sexuality, especially in the context of how colonial states use sex as a form of power and control. Students will utilize their critical thinking skills to learn about heteronormativity and the impacts of settler colonialism on Indigenous communities. Through small and large group discussions, students will explore topics covering imperialism, sexuality, and watch videos relating to how federal policies seek to reinforce hetero-patriarchy within the United States.
