Indigenous academic Lil Gikendaaso has dropped a new mixpaper that’s already burning up the journal charts.
Indigenous Political Ontology is Medicine, published through the University of Saskatchewan where Lil Gikendaaso is a professor of Indigenous Studies, is being cited hundreds of times.
“This mixpaper is a dream manifested right in front of my face,” said Lil Gikendaaso, flashing her trademark grill and wearing a massive bison fur coat.
“All of the hard work, all of the grind, sacrifice — it’s in these pages.”
Also in the pages is a venemous diss chapter aimed at Adam Gaudry, assistant professor at the University of Alberta with whom Lil Gikendaaso has been in a very public feud with.
Gaudry refused to comment on the diss chapter.
The mixpaper had already been generating considerable buzz even before it officially dropped. A chapter, Research is Ceremony (feat. Chelsea Vowell) had been leaked to Academia.edu in late 2017 and was immediately praised by critics.
