    Excellent book. Should be read by anyone interested in liberatory pedagogy, cultural competency training, diversity initiatives in institutional settings, and anyone interested in learning more about the history and ongoing colonization of Indigenous peoples in Canada

    This book helped me see some things more clearly. I found its focus on regaining control and jurisdiction over education helpful - this is by no means a new effort my Indigenous Nations, but it must be at the centre of decolonization. Decolonization of education can't just be indigenization and it can't just focus on cultural content. The focus on trauma is also useful - trauma can be a double edged sword, it's necessary to recognize, but on the other hand it re-pathologizes those who have gone This book helped me see some things more clearly. I found its focus on regaining control and jurisdiction over education helpful - this is by no means a new effort my Indigenous Nations, but it must be at the centre of decolonization. Decolonization of education can't just be indigenization and it can't just focus on cultural content. The focus on trauma is also useful - trauma can be a double edged sword, it's necessary to recognize, but on the other hand it re-pathologizes those who have gone through it. The interviews with Indigenous students and professors were also very useful, where school often erodes identity and self-worth. It's important to acknowledge the emotional impacts of parts of the curriculum including adequate time for debriefing and preparing. Making sure Indigenous students are safe in the classroom when they are the minority is paramount - Cote-Meek provides some ideas on how to begin to do that. She ends with Sandy Grande's Red pedagogy as a liberatory project where racism is confronted and sovereignty is centred.
