does anyone have some resources about indigenous history of the americas? specifically something like a podcast or recorded lectures that are free to listen to?
i'm white as hell so i don't want to step on any toes, but also... this is emphatically stuff i should know, and is a huge gap in my knowledge.
i'm disabled/often full of pain meds so i don't have the mettle to pay for and follow a proper course, but if anyone knows free resources, i'd super appreciate it.
(why i'm asking is that i know i could probably find many courses... being taught by white people as if they're teaching about dead civilizations. but i want to actually learn properly, not just be fed more bullshit.
i'm also honestly not opposed to a more casual/pop history sort of style because, well, spoonie brain is not up to grad school level discussion. it doesn't have to pander to me with a puppet show, but i'm just, uh, kinda stupid when pain meds are on board.)
@wigglytuffitout I haven't read it yet myself, but I have seen Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz's An Indigenous People's History of the United States recommended by several Native folks over the last couple of years.
There is an audiobook version of it so you may have luck with your local library system, or potentially you could get it as a free trial on Audible (only looks to be US version though, sigh).
@wigglytuffitout you're gonna want to get your paws on a copy of this bad boy as a starting point https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J6Y98UE/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1
