If Decolonization is not a Metaphor (Tuck & Yang, 2012), what does #landback look like, in practice? How can non-Native settlers actively participate in disrupting settler colonialism ideologically and in practice, and support processes of rematriation in their work and lives? How are such actions positioned when most people living on Turtle Island lead lives enmeshed in capitalist structures which require dispossession? We hear from people who have been involved in Indigenous resistance work, what #landback means to them, and what possibilities the future holds if there is an authentic collective effort to disrupt the persisting violence of settler colonialist practices.
