Staff Reviews

This collection of narratives illustrates the diverse experiences of indigenous North Americans and the many obstacles they face. Sinclair has accumulated remarkable stories from indigenous people across the continent—at Standing Rock, at Yale, and beyond. While the statistics in many Native communities are grim, the people are not. The individuals featured in this book have accomplished much despite the institutional racism, neglect, and poverty doled out to them by the powers that be. I came out of this book enraged and inspired.

— Jade


How We Go Home shares contemporary Indigenous stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land and life.
