We are All Treaty People

We are All Treaty PeopleIn his collection of Prairie essays – some of them personal, some poetic, some political – Roger Epp considers what it means to dwell attentively and responsibly in the rural West.
.
He makes the provocative claim that Aboriginal and settler alike are Treaty people; he retells inherited family stories in that light; he reclaims the rural as a site of radical politics; and he thinks alongside contemporary farm people whose livelihoods and communities are now under intense economic and cultural pressure.
.
We Are All Treaty People invites those who feel the pull of a prairie heritage to rediscover the landscapes of the rural West, and to dwell among its people and their political economy.  Like his parents and grandparents, Roger Epp has lived most of his life on Treaty Six land in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
