Summary, etc.:
"How to build Indigenous resistance movements that refuse the destructive thinking of settler colonialism. Leanne Betasamosake Simpson locates Indigenous political resurgence as a practice rooted in uniquely Indigenous theorizing, writing, organizing, and thinking. She makes clear that the goal of Indigenous resistance can no longer be cultural resurgence as a mechanism for inclusion in a multicultural mosaic, calling for unapologetic, place-based Indigenous alternatives to the destructive logics of the settler colonial state. This is an astonishing work of Indigenous intellectualism and activism — by far the most provocative, defiant, visionary, and generous of Leanne Betasamosake Simpson's impressive corpus to date." -- Daniel Heath Justice (Cherokee Nation), University of British Columbia.
