This is an exceptional, important book. It's not an easy read, as it's full of hard experiences and hard truths, but it is a book that every Canadian should read.

Hell, any person in any country that has seen any form of racism, misogyny, or hate...any really, can any country claim that has never happened?

Chief Joseph presents a look back at his life, showing the tough, yet mostly happy life he had before being mandated to a Residential School for deprogramming, the aftermath of those horrifying years, and his eventual path back to hope and forgiveness.

Along the way, we're shown the depths that humanity can fall to, as well as the heights they can achieve with love and the simple acts of kindness.

I am shamed that the country I live in perpetrated these hateful acts against our Indigenous population, aimed at literally wiping them out, and I am heartened that these brave souls have managed not only to overcome this genocide, but to find some peace and a path forward.

This is an incredible story, and I'm better for having experienced it.

Please note that I had the privilege of knowing, and working with, Bobby Joseph for a couple of years on the Indian Residential Schools Resolution issue. I found him to be a thoughtful and courageous leader with deep concern for residential school Survivors. It broke my heart to hear the details of what happened to him as a child at St. Michael's residential school.

In this book, Chief Joseph tells not only his own story, but draws on teachings and insights he has gained over the years to show us how reconciliation can be achieved, both on an interpersonal level and on a broader, societal level. It is, ultimately, a hopeful book. It teaches us about Aboriginal traditions and society that can bring about a deeper understanding among all Canadians. It is a courageous book as it is written with honesty and doesn't sugar coat things. At the same time, it focuses on the future and making our country a better place. Very worth reading!… (més)

This is one of many beautifully illustrated books of Pacific Northwest Coast native art. What makes this one special is that each section is written by people from each tribe, discussing what they see as the most important aspects of their culture. These writers also chose art pieces from the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Museum and explained how they relate to their traditions.

I've read a lot of these books; this is a great introduction to the basic culture for new readers but also includes enough interesting details and terms for more knowledgeable readers.… (més)
