Indigenous genders and sexualities are key locations for colonial control. Through gender and sexuality, state power enacts gendered and sexualized violence in order to regulate Indigenous communities and seek control of Indigenous bodies and land. Indigenous Queer, Trans, and feminist movements resist colonial control through asserting gender and sexuality as pivotal locations for decolonial resistance. This paper will look to Indigenous movements against gendered and sexualized violence in order to imagine transnational Indigenous Queer, Trans, and feminist resistance to colonial powers.
