From Where I Stand

From Where I Stand is a nonfiction book by Jody Wilson-Raybould.

Jody Wilson-Raybould

Jody Wilson-Raybould is an Indigenous leader who has dedicated her life to Indigenous Rights and has represented both First Nations and the Crown at the highest levels. She doesn't shy away from giving Canadians what she believes they need most — straight talk on what has to be done to move beyond our colonial legacy and achieve true reconciliation.

In this powerful book, drawn from speeches and other writings, Wilson-Raybould urges all Canadians — both Indigenous and non-Indigenous — to build upon the momentum already gained or risk hard-won progress being lost. The good news is that Indigenous Nations already have the solutions. But now is time to act and build a shared postcolonial future based on the foundations of trust, cooperation, recognition, and good governance. (From Purich Books
