Join VOW’s Online Events Amplifying Indigenous Voices & Resistance

Tune into our event series around the launch of How We Go Home: Voices of Indigenous North America, our latest oral history collection.

The newest addition to the Voice of Witness (VOW) oral history book series, How We Go Home, launched in October 2020. The book shares twelve contemporary first-person stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land, rights, and life. These powerful and urgent narratives are shaped by loss, injustice, resilience, and the struggle to share space with settler nations. Edited by Sara Sinclair, How We Go Home provides deep historical context for understanding present-day Indigenous lived experiences and the intergenerational impacts of over five hundred years of colonization in North America.

To highlight the vital stories and issues featured in How We Go Home, Voice of Witness is organizing an ongoing event series around the book in partnership with publisher Haymarket Books, grassroots Indigenous advocates, and partner organizations across North America. The events focus on issues including Indigenous representation and visibility, oral history and education, resistance and resilience, violence against Native women, and environmental justice and land rights. Continuing into 2021, the events will create connections between personal narratives and structural oppression, and identify calls to action to support movements for Indigenous justice.

The book is available for purchase online and and corresponding free lesson plans are available for download.
