Colonization does not, after all, affect people only economically. More fundamentally, it affects a people’s understanding of their universe, their place within that universe, the kinds of values they must embrace and actions they must make to remain safe and whole within that universe. In short, colonization alters both the individual’s and the group’s sense of identity. Loss of identity is a major dimension of alienation, and when severe enough it can lead to individual and group death. When an individual’s sense of self is… distorted by the impact of contradictory points of view, colonization and its terrible effects will not be assuaged by mere retention of land rights and economic self-sufficiency.
