In Peace, Power, Righteousness: an indigenous manifesto, Mohawk scholar Taiaiake Alfred presents a strong, well-reasoned argument for First Nations communities to return to their traditional political values in order to achieve true self-determination through the power of reason. Alfred draws on the traditional teachings of The Great Law of Peace for his inspiration. He maintains that only when Aboriginal communities are grounded in their traditional values of consensus-based government will they succeed in healing the divisions.
Heeding the Voices of Our Ancestors: Kahnawake Mohawk Politics and the Rise of Native Nationalism is a groundbreaking book by Gerald Taiaiake Alfred, a Mohawk scholar from Kahnawake. He explains the recent rise of Mohawk nationalism and their view of sovereignty by exploring the history of Kahnawake and their political institutions both traditional and contemporary. Mohawk interaction with the state is most often negative and the results are seen in the 1990 "Oka crisis". The book is based on the author's Ph.D. dissertation and the introductory chapter is devoted to political theory.
