The last section of Chapter One in Dr. Ladd’s “Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood” proposes the the evidence points to the idea of Deaf communities’ experience resembling the colonialist situation. It also mentions what is needed to reverse that situation, including getting those who are interested in multilingual issues to involve the Deaf communities in their work in promoting equality for all languages and cultures.

Discusses several of the artforms that the Deaf community has embraced all those years: folk arts (storytelling, creative sign-play) and visual arts. Mentions that before Oralism, Deaf artists created art that had political messages and gained recognition from the majority culture(s), but that drastically reduced during the heyday of Oralism. Artists made a good comeback during the Resurgence. Recently, Deaf arts organizations have popped worldwide, giving support to Deaf artists.
