I don't have time to do a long post, but I wanted to pass along that I just found out that noted Mohawk legal scholar and activist Patricia Monture has passed away. I never had the chance to meet Monture, but her writings are very powerful and they played an important role for me in my initial learning, as a settler, about indigenous struggle on Turtle Island. (See here and here for things I've written about a couple of her books, and here for a review of an important collection that came out of a network of scholars in which she was a senior figure.) My condolences to her family and friends. Her passing is a great loss to struggles for justice and liberation in northern Turtle Island.
