How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America

Haymarket Books

How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America shares contemporary first-person stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land, rights, and life.

Hear from: Jasilyn Charger, who kickstarted a movement of Water Protectors at Standing Rock that roused the world; Gladys Radek, whose niece’s disappearance led her to become a family advocate for the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls; Ervin Chartrand, whose early experiences in the carceral system inform his documentaries on the overrepresentation of Indigenous people within the prison system today; Marian Naranjo, who led Santa Clara and nearby pueblos to document the environmental and cultural consequences of living next door to Los Alamos National Laboratory; and eight others.

Theirs are stories shaped by loss, injustice, resilience, and the struggle to share space with settler nations.
