Professor Jaskrian Dhillon, a member of NYC Stands with Standing Rock and dedicated community organizer/activist, has a new book!
Prairie Rising: Indigenous Youth, Decolonization, and the Politics of Intervention provides an insightful, grounded, and rigorous examination of the shifting forms of settler colonialism over the last 20 years on the plains of Saskatchewan. In this book Dhillon challenges the belief that the Canadian government is fully committed to social justice and reconciliation with First Nations. Follow the link to read more and purchase!
