    Summary: 
    "Denied her Indigenous status, Lynn Gehl has been fighting her entire life to reclaim mino-pimadiziwin-the good life. Exploring Anishinaabeg philosophy and Anishinaabeg conceptions of truth, Gehl shows how she came to locate her spirit and decolonize her identity, thereby becoming, in her words, "fully human." Gehl also provides a harsh critique of Canada and takes on important anti-colonial battles, including the land claims process and sex discrimination in the Indian Act." -- Provided by publisher.
