After a decades-long fight for status, Lynn Gehl was finally granted registration as an "Indian" in a 2017 landmark court ruling. A long-time activist, she has taken on anti-colonial battles, including the land claims process and sexism in the Indian Act. In Claiming Anishinaabe, she recounts her private journey to reclaim mino-pimadiziwin—the good life. "Clear, insightful, and desperately needed." Lorraine F. Mayer, author of Cries from a Metis Heart
