Nationhood Interrupted

Revitalizing Nêhiyaw Legal Systems

Book - 2015
Rate this:
Traditionally, nêhiyaw (Cree) laws are shared and passed down through oral customs -- stories, songs, ceremonies -- using lands, waters, animals, land markings and other sacred rites. However, the loss of the languages, customs, and traditions of Indigenous peoples as a direct result of colonization has necessitated this departure from the oral tradition to record the physical laws of the nêhiyaw. McAdam, a co-founder of the international movement Idle No More, shares nêhiyaw laws so that future generations, both nêhiyaw and non-Indigenous people, may understand and live by them to revitalize Indigenous nationhood.
