From: Warrior Life
In the Foreword, Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair breaks down the differences between the English meaning of a warrior and in Anishinaabemowin, and examines the implications of those differences for our cultural relationship to violence, responsibility and love. He explains why Pamela Palmater is an ogichidaa, or warrior, based on these reflections of its meaning, and why she is poised to write this book.
