"A welcome contribution to the decolonization paradigm in Criminology, a discipline that is complicit in the enslavement, colonization, genocidization and criminalization of Others with repressive fetishes of western modernity." Biko Agozino, editor, African Journal of Criminology
"A major original contribution providing a valuable theoretical comparative perspective to the limits of traditional Western criminology by defying the status quo and giving Indigenous people a criminological voice." Stuart Henry, San Diego State University
"Thoroughly researched, brilliantly argued, this powerful critique of mainstream criminology carves an elegant and welcome path to critical and responsive Indigenous-informed criminology." L. Jane McMillan, St. Francis Xavier University, Canada
