"Taiaiake Alfred does not shy away from the really hard issues of war and peace in a genuinely innovative text embedded in many tens of thousands of years of human history." - Anthony J. Hall, University of Lethbridge
With each of his books, Taiaiake Alfred challenges us to confront the future with new ways of thinking about where we as indigenous communities have been, where we are now and what thinking tools and warrior tools we need to move forward as indigenous nations. This is a book that needs to be read by indigenous leaders, activists, politicians, scholars, community workers, artists, teachers—in fact anyone who sees their future as an indigenous person in an indigenous world.(Linda Smith, University of Auckland, New Zealand)
Taiaiake Alfred's way is the warrior's way, which is to say that he speaks truly dangerous words about Canadian colonialism, the need for substantive restitution rather than mere recognition of 'Aboriginal rights,' for autonomy rather than dependent forms of 'self-government,' and for peaceful coexistence between and among indigenous and non-indigenous peoples. In this book he rejects Aboriginalism as a legalistic, integrating ideology that destroys individuals and communities, and argues instead for an anarcho-indigenist perspective that is non-capitalist, non-statist, pro-feminist, and based on a sustainable relation to nature.(Richard Day, Queen's University)
This eminent scholar of North American indigenism boldly proposes new strategies for the new warriors of cultural and spiritual resurgence. Taiaiake Alfred does not shy away from the really hard issues of war and peace in a genuinely innovative text embedded in many tens of thousands of years of human history on Turtle Island and in more than five centuries of concerted resistance to the ongoing violence of the Columbian conquests.(Anthony J. Hall, Founding Coordinator of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge and author of The American Empire and the Fourth World) See all Product Description
