Claiming Anishinaabe: Decolonizing the Human Spirit Book Launch with the author Lynn Gehl

October 12 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm

Denied her Indigenous status, Lynn Gehl has been fighting her entire life to reclaim mino-pimadiziwin–the good life. Exploring Anishinaabeg philosophy and Anishinaabeg conceptions of truth, Gehl shows how she came to locate her spirit and decolonize her identity, thereby becoming, in her words, “fully human.” Gehl also provides a harsh critique of Canada and takes on important anti-colonial battles, including sex discrimination in the Indian Act and the destruction of sacred places. Claiming Anishinaabe is one woman’s personal journey of moving deeper into Indigenous knowledge and working to resist the racist and sexist legacy of the Indian Act.
