Claiming Anishinaabe: Decolonizing the Human Spirit
Relying on Indigenous ways of knowing, Status draws on personal experience and introspection. Author Lynn Gehl explores Anishinaabeg knowledge philosophy, conceptions of truth, and the nature of the human spirit. Knowledge, she tells us, is not only located in the mind. It is instead found in the heart, in our practices, our stories, and the rituals and ceremonies we engage in. It is that knowledge that Gehl draws from when resisting the ongoing colonialist policies of governments that are still used to control Indigenous peoples.

Reading this book changed how I think about decolonization and knowledge itself. Lynn Gehl inspires readers to be Indigenists and envision a new future together. A must-read for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
