Decolonising masculinity: Indigenous thinking

In the spirit of truly decolonising masculinity, we ask: if the solution is not to supplant an oppressive universalism with another, what might we learn from restorying masculinities back into place and culture? In this module, we dialogue with Indigenous guests who reframe some of the most intractable paradoxes in the “culture wars” by offering perspectives that include multiplicity.
