Otter's Journey Through Indigenous Language and Law takes the Anishinaabe traditional protocols regarding storytelling to explore how Ojibwe language revitalization can inform the growing field of Indigenous legal revitalization. Utilizing the process of storytelling the book follows the journey of Otter, an Ojibwe dodem on a journey across Anishinaabe, Inuit, Maori, Coast Salish, and Abenaki territories, through a narrative of Indigenous resurgence. By combining oral narrative, prose fiction, and autobiography, Lindsay Borrows models a scholarly practice grounded in family, community, and storytelling to make a significant contribution in this emerging field of study. She is Anishinaabe and a member of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation in Ontario. Each fall in her home territory she helps run land-based Indigenous legal education camps for Ontario law schools. She has been a researcher at the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Court in Arizona, the United Nations, and the University of Victoria Indigenous Law Research Unit. She is a recipient of the Law Foundation of British Columbia Public Interest Award.
