Winner of the 2019-20 Huguenot Society of Canada Award "Powerful ... A deeply empathetic and inspiring work with insights of value to anyone struggling to overcome personal or communal trauma." -- Library Journal " A] beautifully written book about strategies for healing from intergenerational trauma ... In crystal-clear prose, Methot has written a book that is both easy to follow and crucial to read." -- LitHub Five hundred years of colonization have taken an incalculable toll on the Indigenous peoples of the Americas: substance use disorders and shockingly high rates of depression, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions brought on by genocide and colonial control. With passionate logic and chillingly clear prose, author and educator Suzanne Methot uses history, human development, and her own and others' stories to trace the roots of Indigenous cultural dislocation and community breakdown in an original and provocative examination of the long-term effects of colonization. But all is not lost. Methot also shows how we can come back from this with Indigenous ways of knowing lighting the way.

Suzanne Methot is a Nehiyaw (Cree) writer, editor, educator, and community worker born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and raised in Peace River, Alberta. Her work has been published in anthologies including Steal My Rage: New Native Voices and Let the Drums Be Your Heart. She has worked in the non-profit sector, in the classroom, and in advocacy and direct-service positions in Indigenous community-based agencies. She is co-author of the textbook Aboriginal Beliefs, Values, and Aspirations, and she currently lives in Toronto, Ontario.
