"Million documents how Indigenous appropriation of the language of
trauma shifted public discourse away from blaming the deviance of
anomic Indians to recognizing Indigenous children and adults as
victims of sexual violence and Canada's neocolonialism more
broadly."--International Journal of Transitional Justice
"Million effortlessly puts the theories produced by Native healing and organizing projects into conversation with theorists across diverse fields. This book is simply brilliant."--Andrea Smith, author of Native Americans and the Christian Right: The Gendered Politics of Unlikely Alliances
"Million's determination to address dangers on both sides, to avoid binaristic traps, and her care not to dismiss the routes she critiques, require a sophistication and a nimbleness that she is able to supply."--Jennifer Henderson, author of Settler Feminism and Race Making in Canada
