In the speaker's words: "Although many colonized peoples achieved their independence from European colonial invaders during the 20th century, Indigenous peoples are still beset by the legacy of 500 years of western colonial domination and imperialism. This legacy encompasses a history of genocide, racism, environmental exploitation and degradation, cultural misrepresentations, forced diasporas, and material and knowledge appropriation. Regrettably, colonial dominance has relegated our political, social, and economic issues to the margins where they are for the most part ignored.
