Reconciliation is a Lie, Resistance is Hope


From: Warrior Life


Section five, Reconciliation is a Lie, Resistance is Hope is a collection of articles and blog posts by Palmater in response to headlines about reconciliation, abolishing the Indian Act as a way of removing the rights of First Nations, the importance of sovereignty of First Nations, reconciliation in universities and colleges, the Indigenous right to say no as a true test of reconciliation, the importance of conflict in the social change process, and the importance of Indigenous women and girls as warriors of resistance.
