Written by Basil H. Johnston, who was an esteemed Anishinaabe writer, storyteller, language teacher and scholar. He was born in Wasauksing First Nation in 1929, and was a member of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. Johnston was awarded the Order of Ontario, three honourary doctorates, and the 2013 OAC Aboriginal Arts Award.
Edited by Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, a member of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, on the Saugeen Peninsula in Ontario.

This collection of essential and entertaining essays by the incomparable Basil Johnston is drawn from many talks he gave at educational conferences and gatherings across Turtle Island. In these writings, Johnston expresses his concerns that Indigenous cultures are close to extinction, and asserts that preserving Indigenous languages is a vital
step in avoiding that outcome. Think Indian is filled with Johnston’s thoughtful, wise and crucial reflections on Indigenous life, legends, language and culture.
