We are pleased to announce that this year our members’ book, Doodem and Council Fire: Anishinaabe Governance Through Alliance by Heidi Bohaker, is scheduled to be published at the end of this month. If you are a member the book will be sent to you automatically.Not only is this book an exhaustively researched account of the legal traditions of one of the Indigenous peoples of Canada, it is also elaborately illustrated and would make a wonderful Christmas gift!

Because of covid-19, natch.
Traditionally our annual members’ book has been published and sent
to members by now. This year our members’ book, Doodem
and Council Fire: Anishinaabe Governance Through Alliance by
Heidi Bohaker, has been delayed. This book
is elaborately illustrated and, with COVID-19 closures, obtaining
permissions for these illustrations from museums and archives has
been a challenge. We have been given a publication date of the end
of November and will send books immediately upon publication. If there are
further delays we will let all members know.
