Violence No More: The Rise of Indigenous WomenBook - 2017
In Violence No More, Wanda Nanibush offers personal, political and historical accounts of violence against Indigenous women, children and two-spirited people. With the call for a national inquiry finally answered, Nanibush connects that struggle to the larger context of colonial violence from the state, from non-Indigenous men and within Indigenous communities where the trauma has turned inward. An informal and lively history of Indigenous women's activism, Violence No More maps the colonial roots and routes of this tragedy while also showing the massive, consistent and persistent resistance to it. Following the path of many Indigenous women before her, Nanibush offers potential solutions to the continued colonization of Indigenous bodies through violence.
