What Is the Land Back Movement? A Call for Native Sovereignty and Reclamation


This article discusses the Land Back movement which involves the physical reclamation of ancestral lands by the Indigenous people who lived there for time immemorial. Through the treaties, land was taken. The American Constitution was violated in the taking of it. So when "land back" is said, they are talking about actual land return and also talking about the dismantling of many of the systems of white supremacy that have been created to maintain the land being stolen in the first place.
