Warrior Life: Indigenous Resistance and Resurgence

Palmater, P.
“Warrior Life” addresses a range of issues such as oppression, domination, and violent genocide in the context of Indigenous rights, decolonization, politics, and social justice. The resource highlights injustices towards Indigenous Peoples through a fact-based and informational approach; timely and relevant topics are described with up-to-date references and detailed timelines, shedding light on historical and current racial injustice in Canada, such as the ongoing effects of colonization and political promises. In a senior secondary classroom, teachers may use particular sections of the resource to support critical thinking lessons and class discussions. The book may also be used to supplement or enhance classroom lessons or as a reference for inquiry-based student projects.
