This lecture was part of the Penny Lecture series at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio on February 1st., 2010. The Penny Lecture series is sponsored by the Black Studies Department and includes distinguished speakers from around the world. It is called the Penny Lecture because the stipend is one penny! This presentation aimed to place the plight of indigenous communities in the context of State policies of multiculturalism, and to do so in ways that examined the role of the African American community and religious movements and institutions as instruments in the process of ongoing oppression and colonisation. It takes the process of colonisation back to Celtic times in Europe, through the Crusades, the development of Capitalism, the "discovery of the "New World" and the extirpation of African communities in the extraction of colonial wealth from indigenous American communities. It traces this process down to the present time.
