Anton Treuer

For much of history, its accounts have been written by men - white men - for men.

So only one voice was heard and only part of the story was told.

In this history of the Red Lake Nation, commissioned by Red Lake band itself, author/historian/Ojibwe linguist Anton Treuer draws on material from the Red Lake archives, made available for the first time.

It's not only history from another voice, telling another part of the story - "We are much more than  the sum of our tragedies" says Treuer -  it's an entirely new way to think about the research and writing of history.
