(noun | colonialist, noun referring to people | colonialize, verb)

Colonialism is a practice of domination, which involves the subjugation of one people to another. The extent of colonialism’s impact on indigenous understandings of gender and attraction will never be truly known due to the ways in which colonialism works to erase or otherwise destroy indigenous life and knowledge.

e.g. The new textbooks are being protested because they’re teaching heavily colonialized history without any additional context or acknowledgement.
