Editorial Reviews

Review

Dancing On Our Turtle's Back: Stories of Nishnaabeg Re-Creation, Resurgence And A New Emergence is a book that weaves many issues together but helps readers understand that in order for reconciliation to be meaningful to Indigenous people, we need to interpret it broadly and support Indigenous nations by regenerating everything that residential schools attacked and attempted to obliterate. This book provides a valuable perspective on the struggles of Indigenous peoples but also highlights the rich and vibrant ways in which Indigenous people continue to engage themselves. -- Christine McFarlane, in Windspeaker

Leanne Simpson's Dancing on Our Turtle's Back is a beautifully crafted clarion call specifically directed to the Nishnaabeg Nation and the Mississauga Ojibway, the original inhabitants of the Kawarthas. Her new work is a blending of wisdom teachings from the Elders, stories that flow from myth and the oral tradition, illuminations of heart-knowledge (the Debwewin "truth"), studies on the Nishnaabeg language and stages of life, and solidresearch interspersed with brilliant observation. -- Pegi Eyers, in The Link

This is an amazing and inspiring book. Leanne Simpson blends personal stories, oral tradition from elders (as approved by said elders), and insightful analysis to explore the past, present, and future for Anishinaabe people on Turtle Island (aka, North America). Her message is relevant and even urgent for the Anishinaabe, for other Native people, and for non-Natives alike.
