About the Author

Waziyatawin (formerly Angela Cavender Wilson) is a Dakota writer, teacher, and activist committed to the pursuit of Indigenous liberation and reclamation of homelands. Her work seeks to build a culture of resistance within Indigenous communities, to recover Indigenous ways of being, and to eradicate colonial institutions. She is currently writing on the topics of Indigenous women and resistance and Indigenous survival in the collapse of industrial civilization. Waziyatawin comes from the Pezihutazizi Otunwe (Yellow Medicine Village) in southwestern Minnesota. After receiving her Ph.D. in American history from Cornell University in 2000, she earned tenure and an associate professorship in the history department at Arizona State University where she taught for seven years. Waziyatawin currently holds the Indigenous Peoples Research Chair in the Indigenous Governance Program at the University of Victoria. She is the author or co/editor of six volumes, including What Does Justice Look Like? The Struggle for Liberation in Dakota Homeland (St. Paul: Living Justice Press, 2008), which won the 2009 Independent Publishers' Silver Book Award for Best Regional Non-Fiction in the Midwest, and her forthcoming work, For Indigenous Minds Only: A Decolonization Handbook (Santa Fe: SAR Press, forthcoming in 2012).

Reviews

For Indigenous Eyes Only ... is an exciting and useful new text aimed at inspiring and facilitating Native American community activism. With clearly written chapters covering topics ranging from dismantling Native American sports mascots to creating tribal think tanks, the book provides a comprehensive toolbox for postcolonial resistance. The book's intention of encouraging activism, its coverage, and its use of postcolonial theory for Native American studies make it an important addition to contemporary scholarship.... I admire the authors' ambitious goals and would recommend this book for any reader interested in Native American activism or indigenous resistance writ large." -Rebecca Weaver-Hightower, North Dakota Quarterly, Vol. 74, no. 2 (Spring 2007)
