In 2007 the United Nations approved the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. United States endorsement in 2010 ushered in a new era of Indian law and policy. This book highlights steps that the United States, as well as other nations, must take to provide a more just society and heal past injustices committed against indigenous peoples.

"Written in popular style and complemented with savvy artwork by his son Bunky, Walter Echo-Hawk's text is a thoughtful look at how the Declaration challenges and gifts contemporary United States law. This work is not full of technical jargon. It reads like a "spoken ethics" on how we can respectfully restructure our relationships in real time. It would be great if there was a book like this written for the Canadian context." - Steve Heinrichs, Director, Mennonite Church Canada Indigenous Relations
