Description

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. He sees the need for a new generation of leaders who can resist the pressures of colonialism and make self-determination a reality. Recommended for anyone wanting to understand Aboriginal politics in North America. This second edition contains a new preface, and a dialogue held between Taiaike and Vine Deloria recorded in 2005 just before Deloria's death.
