There are many ethnographies of Native communities, but relatively few written by members of those communities. Jacob provides a different picture of contemporary Native communities by focusing on what they are doing to organize for a better future within the context of US capitalism.
—Andrea Smith, author of Native Americans and the Christian Right: The Gendered Politics of Unlikely Alliances
makes a unique contribution to Native/Ethnic Studies, American History, Anthropology and applied scholarship; it is neither a personal platform for polemics and exploration of heritage nor is it a disconnected, naïve analysis of people and their practices. It is an intense and robust examination of decolonization, tradition, and survival. There is no other book like it.
—Barbara A. Meek, author of We Are Our Language: An Ethnography of Language Revitalization in a Northern Athabaskan Community
