Summary, etc.:
"This unique new collection of works by Indigenous scholars explores how the interplay of racism and colonialism has shaped the lives of Indigenous people in areas such as family relations, criminal justice, territorial rights, identity, citizenship, and relations with settler colonialists. With an emphasis on the Two-Row Wampum treaty--a pact between Western and Indigenous nations--the book discusses the historic and contemporary meaning of key terms like race and racism, and identifies how these factors were and continue to be at play in the lives of Indigenous peoples living in a colonized nation. The editors' objective is to provide insight into what can be done to address historic wrongdoings, while also showing how much can be gained by working across differences, revitalizing original partnerships and agreements, and coming together collectively as Canadians to combat racism."--pub. desc.
