All Our Relations: Native Struggles for Land and Life (1999) by Winona LaDuke (Non-fiction)

Winona LaDuke gives this thoughtful, in-depth account of Native resistance to environmental and cultural degradation through examples from communities such as the Seminoles, the Anishinaabeg, the Innu, the Northern Cheyenne, and the Mohawks, among others. LaDuke’s unique understanding of Native ideas and people is born from years of experience and activism, and inspiring testimonies by local Native activists sharing the struggle for survival deepen her analysis. LaDuke speaks forcefully for self-determination and community and offers a beautiful and daring vision of political, spiritual, and ecological transformation.

The book club titles for this year’s book club have been purchased and loaded on the UST libraries’ Kindles.    The Kindles are available for checkout from the OSF Library on the main campus for UST students, faculty and staff for a period of 3 weeks.  You can find additional information regarding the Kindles and a comprehensive title list here<http://www.stthomas.edu/libraries/books/kindles/> or on the library’s website.

The library also either already owns or has ordered the print editions for each title in this years’ book club as to help provide additional access for book club members. We also have two copies in the center we are able to lend out.
