  • First Peoples: Yakama Rising
    Activism and Healing argues that Indigenous communities themselves have the answers to the persistent social problems they face This book contributes to understanding Indigenous social change by articulating the premise that grassroots activism and cultural revitalization are powerful examples of decolonization Michelle Jacob employs ethnographic case studies to demonstrate the tension between reclaiming traditional cultural practices and adapting to change Through interviewees narratives she carefully tacks back and forth between the atrocities of colonization and the remarkable actions of individuals committed to sustaining Yakama heritage Focusing on three domains of Indigenous revitalization dance language and foods Jacob carefully elucidates the philosophy underlying and unifying each domain while also illustrating the importance of these practices for Indigenous self determination healing and survival In the impassioned voice of a member of the Yakama Nation Jacob presents a volume that is at once intimate and specific to her home community but that also advances theories of Indigenous decolonization feminism and cultural revitalization Jacob s theoretical and methodological contributions make this work valuable to a range of students academics tribal community members and professionals and an essential read for anyone interested in the ways that grassroots activism can transform individual lives communities and society
