Summary, etc.:
The book begins with glimpses of foods, medicines, and cultural practices North America's indigenous peoples have shared with the rest of the world. It documents the dark period of regulation by racist laws during the twentieth century, and then discusses new emergence in the twenty-first century into a re-establishment of Indigenous land and resource rights. The result is a candidly told, personal take on the history of Aboriginal rights in Canada and Canadian history told from a First Nations point of view. -- Review from publisher.
