Mohawk Interruptus

For Cultural Anthropology 2018-2019 we read a selection from Mohawk Interruptus by Audra Simpson in Guest’s Reader for a Global Age.

Guest’s question about the reading tied this to a previous class on Decolonizing Diversity: “The United States and Canada are rarely discussed as colonial states or settler states in contemporary history or politics. Does this reframing push you to rethink the experience of Native peoples in these countries?” (166).


Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
