CHA Reads 2018

It is that time of year again! The Unwritten Histories blog is hosting the second annual edition of CHA Reads. Over the course of this week, five scholars will argue why their book should win the coveted CHA book prize.

This year, I’m participating by ‘defending’ Susan M. Hill’s The Clay We Are Made Of: Haudenosaunee Land Tenure on the Grand River.  I highly recommend Hill’s book for anyone engaged in working with Indigenous communities and the history of land relationships. I would also recommend Hill’s work to folks looking to deepen their understanding of Haudenosaunee worldviews.

Follow the #CHAReads2018 posts on Unwritten Histories and on social media throughout the week to learn more about all of the books nominated for the CHA book prize. The week is being wrapped up in a Twitter discussion on Friday at 2pm ET which is open to all.  I’m really looking forward to hearing what other people thought about all of this year’s books.
