The launch of Looking Back and Living Forward: Indigenous Research Rising Up Series: Transgressions: Cultural Studies and Education (Brill and Sense Publishers) hosted by Niigaan Sinclair

This book brings together research from a diverse group of scholars from a variety of disciplines. The work shared in this book is done by and with Indigenous peoples, from across Canada and around the world. Together, the collaborators’ voices resonate with urgency and insights towards resistance and resurgence. The various chapters address historical legacies, environmental concerns, community needs, wisdom teachings, legal issues, personal journeys, educational implications, and more.
