It is a new look at old Cree traditions and laws through a one of a kind publication written by Idle no more co-founder Sylvia McAdam.
She is now taking her book tour on the road after first unveiling the book earlier this month in Saskatoon.
Tonight she is at the First Nations University in Regina to talk about her latest work called Nationhood Interrupted, Revitalizing Cree Legal Systems.
“What makes this book unique is this is the first time that these laws have been written down and this book was taken to ceremonies, protocol was utilized and permission was given”.
She says the book looks at how those laws and traditions were distorted and often lost with the arrival of white settlers.
She says doing the research on the book and talking to elders and knowledge keepers was very empowering.
This is McAdam’s second book.
