Note from the promotional information for this volume: "In Indigenous storytelling the concept of Indigenous Futurisms - a term coined by Anishinaabe scholar Grace L. Dillon - tells of the past, present, and future as being a nonlinear reality. Using the knowledge of the ancestors, it is possible to experience history, be in the present and witness the future at once. The intelligence of those who came before us is to be honoured - for through the eyes of their past we recognize the truth of our present, and are able to envision many possible futures or alternate realities. With this, events created by the authors contained in this Collection are made of a fabric that includes traditions, ancestral memories and the utmost respect."
