Summary

This chapter explores the link between Indigenous resistance and memory and looks at the potential for alliances. I begin with Simon Ortiz’s Fight Back, written in commemoration of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt against Spanish imperialism. Fight Back asserts that memory is essential to contemporary resistance by reclaiming the history of the Revolt and restoring this memory to the people. I bring Chela Sandoval’s concept of “coalitional consciousness” into dialogue with Fight Back to show how Ortiz countermaps the landscape, offering a model for contemporary alliances. Following Ortiz’s generous vision of alliances between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous allies, I turn to Nick Estes’s description of contemporary solidarity and Indigenous-led coalitions at Standing Rock. Then, in the final part of the chapter, I bring two authors, Kazim Ali and Rita Wong, into dialogue to think through the responsibilities of alliance.
