WHS Press: Why did you decide to write A History in Indigenous Voices?

C.C.: I wanted to hear the voices of our ancestors during this critical removal time period. I wanted to know what our ancestors said to each other as they were negotiating treaties. So many authors quote a sentence or two from historical documents, but basically, Indigenous voices have been omitted. I wanted to hear the rest of the story from our ancestors’ perspective.
