About the Book
In a moment where unlawful pipelines are built on Indigenous territories, the RCMP make illegal arrests of land defenders on unceded lands, and anti-Indigenous racism permeates social media, the renowned lawyer, author, speaker and activist Pamela Palmater returns to wade through media misinformation and government propaganda and get to the heart of key issues lost in the noise.
Warrior Life is the second collection of writings by Palmater. In keeping with her previous works, numerous op-eds, media commentaries, YouTube channel videos, and podcasts, Palmater is fiercely anticolonial, antiracist, and more crucial than ever before. Palmater addresses a range of Indigenous issues—empty political promises, ongoing racism, sexualized genocide, government lawlessness and the lie that is reconciliation—making complex political and legal implications accessible to all of us.
From one of the most important, inspiring, and fearless voices on Indigenous rights, decolonization, Canadian politics, social justice, earth justice, and beyond, Warrior Life is an unflinching critique of the colonial project that is Canada and a rallying cry for Indigenous Peoples and allies alike to forge a path toward a decolonial future through resistance and resurgence.
