Following community responsibility and Indigenous values (axiology) I publish in both popular cultural locations (aka grassroots publishing) and academic journals – the goal being to reach community people versus merely academicians.
Through my experience I have learned that those closest to the truth are often times the most ridiculed, undermined, and disenfranchised. The fact that Canada's Parliament buildings reside on traditional Algonquin territory, yet the Algonquin were ignored during the historic treaty process, is the best example of this. Unfortunately, this process of denial is played out daily in many of our relationships.
