Nationhood Interrupted: Revitalizing nêhiyaw Legal Systems: Sylvia McAdam (Saysewahum)

Nationhood Interrupted

Sylvia McAdam (Sasewahum) will be speaking in Winnipeg February 10 & 11, 2016. While I continue to find specific details, I’m pleased to share some of the wonderful resources she has created here.

Sylvia is very clear in her video lectures that sharing these teachings far and wide is encouraged:I feel fortunate to help pass them on here.

Her book, Nationhood Interrupted includes a glossary of Cree terms. It is available from McNally Robinson in Winnipeg and Saskatoon, or can be ordered online from Purich Publishing. Global News Saskatoon interviewed her about its launch in March 2015: http://globalnews.ca/news/1861051/book-sheds-light-on-unwritten-indigenous-laws/

A collection of Sylvia’s wonderful lectures – some of which became part of her book – can be found on Vimeo. Listen carefully for the Cree terms!

Sylvia McAdam Teachings Part 1: Sylvia McAdam talks to the Intercultural Leadership Program’s 100 level class about the Cree laws and the human birth.”

Sylvia McAdam Teachings Part 2: Sylvia McAdam talks to the Intercultural Leadership Program’s 100 level class about the Cree Laws. Sylvia also tells the story about her uncle freezing to death and coming back to life three days later bringing an important message.
