Book Reviews Waziyatawian. What Does Justice Look Like? The Struggle for Liberation in Dakota Homeland. St. Paul, MN: Living Justice Press, 2008. 200 pp. Paper, $18.00. Jacki Thompson Rand, University of Iowa Justice, according to Waziyatawian, the historian formerly known as Angela Cavendar Wilson and holder of an endowed chair at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, is long overdue for the Dakota peoples whose traditional homelands lie within the contemporary state of Minnesota. The author's exploration of justice for the Dakotas' historic and contemporary sufferings under American colonialism is intersected by her account of state planning for the Minnesota Sesquicentennial (2008), the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the historical displacement of the Dakotas first by their traditional enemies, removed Ojibway bands, and then by wasicu (white) settlers. The author, not unlike many Native scholars and community people, refuses the persistent American denial of the history of horrors committed against indigenous peoples and calls for "truthtelling" to correct the accepted historical narrative. Conspicuously absent from her discussion about settler colonialism is a pervasive Christian presence in the colonization of the Dakotas and the mission to civilize Indians by destroying their religions
