Reviews

"The most recent book by Charlotte Coté (Tseshaht/Nuu-chah-nulth) continues her trend of exceptional scholarship that draws from her academic and personal expertise on the politics of food sovereignty for Indigenous Peoples in the Pacific Northwest...A Drum in One Hand provides a broad exploration of the Indigenous food sovereignty movement as seen through the lens of Coté and her family's practices."

-- "Native American and Indigenous Studies Journal"

"This book is based in, and within, Indigenous knowledges; specifically, Tseshaht philosophy and ontology. To be privy to such information feels like an incredible gift: Coté's stories are generous and insightful."

--Tabitha Robin "Pacific Northwest Quarterly (PNQ)"

"This is an innovative work that tells living histories not just through people, but also through rivers, gardens, berry patches, and more. This dynamic and engaging book pursues an Indigenous-centered methodology that speaks to health and healing, ecology and environment, community and sovereignty, past, present, and future, and beyond."

--Western History Association Donald L. Fixico award committee
