Thomas Hall argues that the history of survival of Native Americans and of Indigenous Peoples has continuing relevance for all human futures and that such a history can suggest pointers to future survival. Rather than simply imitating the actions of the past, contemporary struggles can draw inspiration and hope for their own contexts.
Thomas Hall has published extensively on the topics of Indigenous Peoples and globalization. Some of his recent work includes a co-authored book "Indigenous Peoples and Globalization: Resistance and Revitalization" (pictured here), a book chapter titled "Ethnogenesis" in the book "Routledge Companion to Race and Ethnicity", and the article "Indigenous Movements and Globalization: What is Different? What is the Same?" in the journal Globalizations.
