Truly understand the treaties: Review

9781772060539_FCMi'kmaw HumanitiesWe’ve responded to a number of requests from academics for examination copies of two recent books centred on Indigenous studies, and it seems like a good time to share the latest review of Living Treaties: Narrating Mi’kmaw Treaty Relations, edited by Marie Battiste.

The latest issue of Ethnologies 37 (2), Folklore Studies Association of Canada, includes a great review by Katie K. MacLeod (Dalhousie University).

Living Treaties … presents the treaties in a more digestible and anecdotal manner.”

It allows the reader “to truly understand how treaties are relevant in the daily lives of Mi’kmaq while still learning about important Supreme Court Decisions.”

“Non-indigenous readers [especially] will gain a better understanding of what it means to be a treaty partner and the importance of reconciliation moving forward.”
