Unsettling the moral terrain of settler colonialism is about the terrain: Lisa Cooke, ‘Carving “turns” and unsettling the ground under our feet (and skis): A reading of Sun Peaks Resort as a settler colonial moral terrain’, Tourist Studies, 2017
Abstract: In this article, I take the recent mobilities and moralities “turns” in tourism studies to an autoethnographic contemplation of a site most dominantly known as Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia, Canada. In so doing, I examine what the intersections of mobilities and moralities do on this settler colonial terrain. By thinking with mobilities for the moral structures they anchor in place, the ground under settler colonial feet (and skis) is unsettled. The result is that conversations about Indigenous-settler land relations become a shared responsibility to a practice of decolonization that is grounded, sustained, and meaningful.
