Description

The Winona LaDuke Chronicles: Stories from the Front Lines in the Battle for Environmental Justice is a major work, a collection of current, pressing and inspirational stories of Indigenous communities from the Canadian subarctic to the heart of Dine Bii Kaya, Navajo Nation. Chronicles is a book literally risen from the ashes - beginning in 2008 after her home burned to the ground - and collectively is an accounting of Winona's personal path of recovery, finding strength and resilience in the writing itself as well as in her work. Long awaited, Chronicles is a labour of love, a tribute to those who have passed on and those yet to arrive. Organized into 8 sections covering the Land; short stories; Women, Idle No More and Canadian Colonialism:Pipelines; Foods, acknowledging Elders and Activists; Indian Wars; and Economics for the Seventh Generation.  Ojibwe social and environmental activist Winona LaDuke writes in a compelling manner that is accessible for senior secondary level students to post secondary. Highly recommended.
