Peyakow: Reclaiming Cree Dignity by Darrel McLeod

In his follow up to Mamaskatch, the memoir of his childhood, McLeod offers an intimate window into adulthood as a queer Cree man in Canada. We follow his career path from teaching to negotiating, working with the government towards First Nations rights and treaties, feeling his celebrations and frustrations. We are taken on his personal journey back to his Cree heritage, one forced from him by the systemic erasure and untying of his people. While there is trauma and loss, both personal and generational, there is also healing, generosity, and introspection – a balance that helps us all. —Melinda
