Otter's Journey through Indigenous Language and Law

Indigenous languages and laws need bodies to live in. When we bring language back to life, it becomes a medium for developing human relationships. Likewise, when laws are written on people's hearts, they are truly revitalized. Otter's Journey employs Anishinaabe storytelling to explore how Indigenous language revitalization can inform Indigenous legal revitalization. In this book, Otter journeys across the globe to compare Indigenous struggles toward self-determination. This journey reveals that the processes, philosophies, and standards of decision making held within Indigenous languages and laws can emerge from the layers of nation-state laws, policies, and language to guide contemporary life.
