It's All about the Land
Collected Talks and Interviews on Indigenous Resurgence
Illuminating the First Nations struggles against the Canadian state, It’s All about the Land exposes how racism underpins and shapes Indigenous-settler relationships. Renowned Kahnawà:ke Mohawk activist and scholar Taiaiake Alfred explains how the Canadian government’s reconciliation agenda is a new form of colonization that is guaranteed to fail.
Bringing together Alfred’s speeches and interviews from over the past two decades, the book shows that Indigenous peoples across the world face a stark choice: reconnect with their authentic cultures and values or continue following a slow road to annihilation.
Rooted in ancestral spirit, knowledge, and law, It’s All about the Land presents a passionate argument for Indigenous Resurgence as the pathway toward justice for Indigenous peoples.
“It’s All about the Land serves as a powerful voice in the discourse surrounding Indigenous rights and identity. The book champions the concept of Indigenous resurgence – a pathway toward justice that emphasizes reconnecting with authentic cultures and values. Alfred’s message is a rallying cry for Indigenous Peoples to reclaim their ancestral spirit, knowledge, and governance.”- Karine Alhakim, University of Toronto Mississauga
