Re-Assessing Early Sikh Migration Histories on Turtle Island: An Anti-Colonial and Critical Solidarity Perspective
Early Canadian Sikh migration and analysis of its anti-colonial origins invokes a decolonial conceptualization of racialized histories in settler colonial Canada. At the same time, this re-assessment confronts non-Indigenous complicity in Canada’s nation building project while initiating the possibility of critical solidarity in the present day through shared and inter-locking colonial histories. Accordingly, this paper respectfully centers critical Sikh and Indigenous scholarship and knowledge to bridge historical and community gaps.
