I would just like to meet her and ask her what the hell she was talking about when she wrote this and what does it all mean.
September 7, at 9: Both Smith and Lorde are correct in theory because history has shown us that those in power will tell history so that they are always the victors.
Indigenous groups were often excluded and men of other races and class wrote the history of their lands from their own perspectives.
Why is history not important to indigenous peoples? Smith writes that history is about power and the story of how colonizers dominated others. Although transforming colonized views requires that Western views be taken into account, the indigenous cannot transform history into justice.

There are certain stories that my whole family is familiar with, and can tell it as if they were there themselves. Oral history allows me to hear first-hand experiences of things that happened in the past that I would not be exposed to through a history book.
