Beier (political science, McMaster U., Canada) explores how the discipline of international relations has internalized many of the enabling narratives of colonialism in the Americas, most tellingly in its failure to take notice of Indigenous peoples. Though he considers briefly the empirical contexts of several different Indigenous peoples of the Americas, he focuses on the Lakota people of the Northern Great Plains of North America to illustrate how a people's cosmology and conceptions such as security and the good life can lie so far outside the narrow range of assumptions in International Relations.
