ara Sinclair and Ashley Hemmers will discuss their personal narratives and experience working with Voice of Witness in the development of the book, How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America.

How We Go Home: Voices from Indigenous North America shares contemporary first-person stories in the long and ongoing fight to protect Native land, rights, and life. Published by Haymarket Books.

The VOW Book Series depicts human rights issues through the edited oral histories of people—VOW narrators—who are most deeply impacted and are often at the heart of solutions to address injustice. The series explores issues of race-, gender-, and class-based inequity through the lenses of the criminal justice system, migration, and displacement.
