This remarkable collection of essays by leading Indigenous scholars focuses on the themes of freedom, liberation and Indigenous resurgence as they relate to the land. They analyze treaties, political culture, governance, "environmental issues," economy and radical social movements, from an anti-colonial Indigenous perspective. Editor Leanne Simpson has solicited Indigenous writers that place Indigenous freedom as their highest political goal, while turning to the knowledge, traditions and culture of specific Indigenous nations to achieve that goal.
