Bridging Canada's Indigenous and White Settler Divide

Canada's Idle No More movement for indigenous treaty rights has all but disappeared from Canadian news. It is a tribute to Canada's First Nations people that current actions remain non-violent.

But the deep desire by Aboriginals to heal the rift caused by Canadians and their government's refusal to honour 100 year old treaties nonetheless remains vital and vigorous. A new book entitled Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry, about to be released, is an attempt to bridge that divide.

Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry, edited by Steve Heinrichs, is a collection of essays by leaders, thinkers, and authors from Canada's indigenous and white settler communities that plays out as a dialogue on vital matters of land justice, creation and understandings of God. Until June 17, 2013, the book can be pre-ordered at a discounted rate of $21.99 from Herald Press.

It will also be available via popular booksellers.
