Resisting The Erasure of Native Voices Through Contemporary Storytelling


On this edition of Your Call, we discuss How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America, a collection of twelve first-person stories by Indigenous people in the US and Canada.It follow their stories and ongoing work to protect Native land, revitalize culture and language and advocate for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. Oral historian Sara Sinclair says these are stories shaped by loss, injustice, resilience, and the struggle to share space with settler nations.
