Literature List – Decolonization

This page contains a list of links to useful articles for general interest, working on academic essays and other projects about indigenous peoples (especially in a Norwegian context). The articles here are aimed at teachers who want to learn more about this topic, and students at universities or colleges.

Some links are in Norwegian and some in English. If you are looking for a specific topic or an article in a specific language that is not on the list, let me know. I have many more available!
