Thanks for that Steve (correct?). Yes, the key question is always about how to achieve that freedom from domination. It's a work in progress and for indigenous peoples worldwide the beginning part of that process has been waking up to exactly how we came to be and continue to be dominated. We all know we are dominated but deconstructing those relationships down to understanding the definitions of the terms of the dominators is paramount, as you so successfully point out in your own work. We cannot take for granted that the terms they use mean the same thing as the terms we use. This is the power of language and who controls "reality."
