Book Club #1: All Our Relations: Native Struggles for Land and Life
All are welcome and encouraged to join CFPA's book club. Meetings will be held in the evenings at CFPA's headquarters in Rockfall, CT. The books we read explore themes such as environmental justice, land conservation, human connection to the environment, environmental policy and more. We will meet upstairs in CFPA's library, or in the downstairs meeting room depending on the number of folks who attend. Please bring a snack or dish to share.
Our first meeting will take place on Wednesday March 15th. The book is "All Our Relations: Native Struggles for Land and Life" by Winona LaDuke.
Summary: This eagerly awaited non-fiction debut by acclaimed Native environmental activist Winona LaDuke is a thoughtful and in-depth account of Native resistance to environmental and cultural degradation. LaDuke's unique understanding of Native ideas and people is born from long years of experience, and her analysis is deepened with inspiring testimonies by local Native activists sharing the struggle for survival. On each page of this volume, LaDuke speaks forcefully for self-determination and community. Hers is a beautiful and daring vision of political, spiritual, and ecological transformation.
