As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom through Radical Resistance, a new book by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
Leanne Betasamosake Simpson recently announced her new book, As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom Through Radical Resistance, to be published by University of Minnesota Press and released later this year on October 2017. This non-fiction work seeks to add to the indigenous resistance movement by instilling traditional virtues instead of settler-colonial destruction into the movement.
Leanne Betasamosake Simpson locates Indigenous political resurgence as a practice rooted in uniquely Indigenous theorizing, writing, organizing, and thinking. She makes clear that the goal of Indigenous resistance can no longer be cultural resurgence as a mechanism for inclusion in a multicultural mosaic, calling for unapologetic, place-based Indigenous alternatives to the destructive logics of the settler colonial state.
