Me Tomorrow: Indigenous Views on the Future
The Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island would like the rest of the world to know that they are not gone. In fact, they are parts of thriving communities that are here to stay. While in the middle of a global pandemic, climate change affecting the whole of the earth, racial injustices, and other hardships, our Indigenous neighbors have a message for us. Just as the first settlers needed the help of the native tribes to survive in the new world, the original inhabitants of Turtle Island are still here, looking to the future with ideas on how to move forward and help themselves and everyone else.
Me Tomorrow: Indigenous Views of the Future is fourth in the “Me” series, a collection of books exploring aspects of Indigenous life. Curated by Drew Hayden Taylor (Ojibwe), a Canadian playwright and author, this book looks into what the future might hold. This is not a dystopian view of tomorrow, on the contrary. Featured writers see a brighter future with Canada’s First Nations leading the way. Essayists include teachers, students, elders, leaders, storytellers, advocates, and activists. As a White American reviewer, I find this is a very important book for everyone to read. With all the crises happening in the world, we can look to ideas and solutions from the Indigenous peoples to see a way forward.
