The Story of a Palestinian Occupied Land, Awarta; A Comparative Study of the Policies of Racism and Discrimination between Palestine and Native America

Authors : Rasha Shaher Al-Ahmad Amman

Abstract: This study aims at a tribalographical reading of a forgotten palestinian village, awarta. It investigates many of the events and non-events in the history of this village and it will discuss the politics of racism and the methods used to colonize and humiliate the Palestinians. In a way, the story of awarta reflects the whole story of palestine since occupation in 1948. It can be said that while no two cases of colonization are exactly alike, there are similarities in the racial policies that are used against the American Indians and the palestinians. This study investigates, through deconstructing the colonial stories and highlighting the stories of repressed groups, a postcolonial and deconstructionist reading which will present a recorded and documented history about one of the palestinian villages that fell under the Israeli occupation since the war of June 1967. Therefore, it is important to come across the postcolonial and tribalographical theories that form the theories of the colonized people.
