Pimatisiwin: The Good Life, Global Indigenous Knowledge Systems by Swampy Cree scholar Priscilla Settee delivers a perspective of what it means to be alive while, at the same time, furthering Indigenous-based struggles for decolonization, social justice and intellectual thought. Using her personal learning path along with a detailed literature review of power politics within institutions of higher learning, the author details several case studies of Indigenous knowledges in the global Indigenous world. Topics include Storytelling, Native Languages Supporting Indigenous Knowledge, Pedagogy of Healing, Indigenous Knowledge and the Arts, and Critical Thought. Locations of Indigenous Knowledge globally include Hawaii, South Africia, Halau Ku Mana, Oskayak High School, University of Pretoria, and Vanuatu. Dr. Priscilla Settee, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Native Studies at the University of Saskatchewan and a member of Cumberland House Cree First Nations from northern Saskatchewan.
