"When asked by an anthropologist what the Indians called America before the white man came, an Indian said simply, "Ours."

―Vine Deloria, Jr.
Vine Deloria Jr (1933-2005) was an influential Sioux scholar and activist, widely known as one of the foremost Native American academics of his generation as well as a respected and influential leader.

Deloria was instrumental in establishing the discipline of American Indian Studies in the United States, and his critical intellectual work made significant contributions across disciplines including theology, history, law, politics, philosophy, education, anthropology and archaeology. Demaille argues that ‘combined with an insatiable curiosity and a reflexive questioning of authority, his literary gifts were unique in his generation (2006:934). Deloria’s academic work demonstrates his commitment to the heritage and future of his people, as well as biting humour and impressive critical political insight.  

Join us for an introduction to some of Vine Deloria’s key works, as we discuss the relevance of his legacy for Critical Indigenous Studies in Australia today.
