Description

Winner of the 2019-20 Huguenot Society of Canada Award

"Powerful ... A deeply empathetic and inspiring work with insights of value to anyone struggling to overcome personal or communal trauma." -- Library Journal

"[A] beautifully written book about strategies for healing from intergenerational trauma ... In crystal-clear prose, Methot has written a book that is both easy to follow and crucial to read." -- LitHub

Five hundred years of colonization have taken an incalculable toll on the Indigenous peoples of the Americas: substance use disorders and shockingly high rates of depression, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions brought on by genocide and colonial control. With passionate logic and chillingly clear prose, author and educator Suzanne Methot uses history, human development, and her own and others' stories to trace the roots of Indigenous cultural dislocation and community breakdown in an original and provocative examination of the long-term effects of colonization.

But all is not lost. Methot also shows how we can come back from this with Indigenous ways of knowing lighting the way.
