In this deeply engaging oral history, Gidigaa Migizi (Doug Williams), Anishinaabe elder, teacher and mentor to Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, recounts the history of the Michi Saagiig Nisnaabeg, tracing through personal and historical events, and presenting what manifests as a crucial historical document that confronts entrenched institutional narratives of the history of the region. Edited collaboratively with Simpson, the book uniquely retells pivotal historical events that have been conventionally unchallenged in dominant historical narratives, while presenting a fascinating personal perspective in the singular voice of Migizi, whose rare body of knowledge spans back to the 1700s. With this wealth of knowledge, wit and storytelling prowess, Migizi recounts key moments of his personal history, connecting them to the larger history of the Anishinaabeg and other Indigenous communities.
