Wasaʹse: Indigenous Pathways of Action and Freedom
The word Wasáse is the Kanienkeha (Mohawk) word for the ancient war dance ceremony of unity, strength, and commitment to action. The author notes, "This book traces the journey of those Indigenous people who have found a way to transcend the colonial identities which are the legacy of our history and live as Onkwehonwe, original people. It is dialogue and reflection on the process of transcending colonialism in a personal and collective sense: making meaningful change in our lives and transforming society by recreating our personalities, regenerating our cultures, and surging against forces that keep us bound to our colonial past."

I am an indigenous person, but not from America. I feel so blessed to have come across with WASASE. One of the best books I have ever read in my life...This book got me goosebumps..I could NOT skip a line or a page...every word was so precious that I took them it like no other. Usually, I took about 2-3 days to read and finish a book. But, I took my time with this book...I slept on the words, I walked with the lines and pages. Alfred did not shy away from saying nor hesitate to say what is needed to be said. He gives the readers what he believes and is important to him and Native Peoples of Canada, and Indigenous peoples, around the world; this book is not to please everyone- but for anyone, who would stand strong for protecting, preserving and resurgence of their culture, language and tradition. This is a Bible for me....I loved it and still do!..on top of my fav book list! - Hkaung :)
