Drawing upon her own life, scholarly work and a in-depth review of the relevant literature, Priscilla Settee delivers a perspective of what it means to be alive while, at the same time, furthering Indigenous-based struggles for decolonization, social justice and intellectual thought. Dr. Melissa Nelson (San Francisco State University) notes: "Pimatisiwin skillfully interrogates the hegemony of power and politics in higher education and offers clear case studies and tools to speak truth to power, build learning alliances, and protect indigenous knowledge for the well-being of all humanity and the Earth." Review: Dr. Melissa K. Nelson, PhD Pimatisiwin is a fascinating and unique offering to educators inside and outside of the academy and to activists globally. Priscilla Settee is a Warrior Woman with a pen who has skillfully woven together her own personal story as a Cree scholar-activist with current research by First Nations and indigenous peoples from around the world. The book outlines common struggles and provides practical solutions to indigenize the academy. Pimatisiwin skillfully interrogates the hegemony of power and politics in higher education and offers clear case studies and tools to speak truth to power, build learning alliances, and protect indigenous knowledge for the well-being of all humanity and the Earth. Settee's "pedagogy of hope and pimatisiwin" will guide the way to indigenous liberation and help create "the good life" once again. Dr. Melissa K. Nelson, PhD Anishinabe/Métis [Turtle Mountain Chippewa] Associate Professor American Indian Studies San Francisco State University President of the Cultural Conservancy
