Abstract
Recent studies have examined the roles and politics of human rights in relation to Indigenous peoples. An analysis of the negotiation of rights discourse by Indigenous women in a comparative framework is however lacking in critical scholarship. This study examines how Indigenous women in Canada and Mexico mobilize rights to challenge the cultural and systemic injustices they endure. With the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) and K'inal Antsetik (Mexico) as case studies, this study seeks to explore how Indigenous women in both places perceive and use human rights. The appropriation and redeployment of rights according to Shannon Speed et al.’s analysis is a useful tool for Indigenous women to apply this discourse to their local realities. A comparative analysis of Indigenous women’s organization’s use of human rights contributes to the establishment of a sustainable, effective and equitable framework and practice of human rights for Indigenous women in various contexts.
