This article examines the role that "place" plays in radical Indigenous activism from the perspective of my community, the Dene Nation. I argue that, although Indigenous peoples' senses of place have been worn by centuries of colonial-capitalist displacement, they still serve as an orienting framework that guides radical Indigenous activism today and offers a way of thinking about relations within and between peoples and the natural world built on principles of reciprocity and freedom.
