Lau Ting Hui Talk: Decolonial Endurance: Indigenous World Making on the China-Myanmar Border

Join Lau Ting Hui for her talk at room 604 in the Asian Center between 2:30 and 4:00 pm.

This talk focuses on Indigenous Lisu subsistence farmers on the China-Mvanmar border and their experiences of Chinese colonial development. Based on long-term ethnographic fieldwork, I examine how Lisu practice decolonial world making to sustain relationships with the land, refuse assimilation, and imagine alternative futures through storytelling, care, play, and prayer.


This talk is part of the Indigenous Asia Online Speaker Series.


Location: Asian Center, Room 604.

Time: 2:30 – 4:00 pm
