As We Have Always Done (Leanne Betasamosake Simpson)Leanne Betasamosake Simpson will be at Centretown United Church on Tuesday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m. for a discussion and signing of her new book, As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom through Radical Resistance. The event is organized by Octopus Books and hosted by Tracey Lindberg, award-winning author of Birdie and professor of law at University of Ottowa.


Leanne Betasamosake Simpson locates Indigenous political resurgence as a practice rooted in uniquely Indigenous theorizing, writing, organizing, and thinking. She makes clear that the goal of Indigenous resistance can no longer be cultural resurgence as a mechanism for inclusion in a multicultural mosaic, calling for unapologetic, place-based Indigenous alternatives to the destructive logics of the settler colonial state.


"I have learned more about this battered world from reading Leanne Betasamosake Simpson than from almost any writer alive today. A dazzlingly original thinker and an irresistible stylist, Simpson has gifted us with a field guide not to mere political resistance but to deep and holistic transformation. It arrives at the perfect time." —Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything
