only rule of this round is that there's no pre-assigned topic

Ah this is actually what I was expecting lmao

 

 

What's the impact?

 

The Scullio evidence seems to say that we shouldn't focus so much on how the ban actually gets lifted and we should ask questions later- how does that ensure the Makah can materially access their whaling traditions?

 

Status quo ethnocentrism like "save a whale, kill an indian" seems to be rooted in a cosmological misunderstanding of the Makah- how does passing a plan resolve that internalized racism?

 

D'Costa says that allowing the makah to whale is an appropriate way to redress the harms of colonialism- is colonialism over after we pass the plan?

 

A lot of your discourse and solvency arguments seem to stem from like a cross-cultural encounter; how do you guarantee that people leave the room or website truly respecting the Makah's connection with the ocean?

 

Let's say you end up defending that a material reform is signed- what guarantees white colonizers honor those laws?

 

When has decolonization ever been successful via reformism?

Colonialism

We think that the more pressing issue in this debate is inclusion of Makah cosmology, tradition and viewpoints before a banal debate over legal loopholes

We don't need to win that everyone accepts the Makah post plan, just that they have the ability access traditional hunting

No

I think I answered that above

I get youre trying to do like a treaty language argument, but we think debate is a question of should, not WOULD- the plan is a good idea

Keystone, allowing natives to prosecute non-tribal members on reservations, land returns, etc.
