In Good Relation: History, Gender, and Kinship in Indigenous Feminisms, edited by Sarah Nickel, Secwépemc, and Amanda Fehr is divided into three thematic sections: Broadening Indigenous Feminisms looks beyond established categories and spaces to consider historical expressions of Indigenous feminism, transnational and regional experiences, violence, representation, and resistance; Queer, Two-Spirit, Transgender Identities and Sexuality envisions Indigenous feminism as a concept with wide ranging applicability through intersections with Indigenous queer studies; and, Multi-generational Feminisms and Kinship confirming Indigenous feminism as a family affair highlighting the multiple shifting, contradictory ways this manifests in many people. Over the twelve chapters, Indigenous feminisms reflect and capture the multiple ways in which gender and race, and therefore systems of power related to sexism, racism, and colonialism, shape Indigenous peoples’ lives. Through the lens of how Indigenous peoples experience gender, and colonial bias, the foundation for most Indigenous feminism discussions, there is potential to expose and destabilize patriarchal gender roles and the structures that sustain and promote continued Indigenous dispossession and disempowerment. Indigenous queer theory and Indigenous masculinities are also complemented through discussions on Indigenous feminisms in, In Good Relation. Broadly this book covers theory, methodology, policy, law, practice, resistance, sovereignty, bodies outside traditional purviews, stereotyping, gender and sexuality, and how this shapes Indigenous peoples’ lives. In Good Relation establishes the centrality of Indigenous feminisms and the relational conversations through themes, methodologies and disciplines: anthropology, filmmaking, policy and justice work, law, storytelling, and poetry for example by community members, scholars and artists thus demystifying the academy/community dichotomy.
