Has anyone read this book? Im reading it right now and am interested in what people think of it.

If you dont know the book it is by Taiaiake Alfred who is a Rotinoshoni (Mohawk) from Kanawake. He is one of two profs who run the Indigenous Governance program at UVic.

The book deals with radical decolonization movements by indigenous people in this part of the world. Alfed offers an anarcho-indigenism analysis of indigenous nations and their relationships with the Canadian (and to some extent the US) State.

He has an awesome website. See the site. And he actually has a rather wry sense of humour too - check out Dear Abbyriginal and Ask the Indian.
