A beautiful telling of a story I thought I knew. I knew the facts and the history. I knew some of the stories. I am grateful for Kaitlin’s invitation to enter her story to join with my own. Miigwetch.

Living Resistance is about resistance and how you can use it in everyday life and not just at protests or boycotting things. Kaitlin B. Curtice looks at resistance in different realms: the personal, the communal, the ancestral, and the integral. She explains each realm at the beginning of each section to help the reader understand it more thoroughly.

I was kind of excited about this book. I’ve been trying to get into reading more nonfiction and I thought this would be one I would enjoy. Maybe it just wasn’t really for me.

I felt like it was a bit repetitive, which makes sense because it’s about life and life is messy and isn’t always straight forward, but when I’m reading a different story with the same message at the end, it gets a bit boring.

It was also a bit more religious than what I was looking for, not so much spiritual.

I feel like a lot of people will be able to take from this, but it just didn’t speak to me as I would hope it would.

I will say, it did make me think about how I want to look to my descendants as their ancestor and what I would want to leave behind for them.

*Thank you Brazos Press and NetGalley for a digital advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I’m looking forward to discussing this with my sister. I think it would make a good book club book if read in small chunks at a time. I appreciate the spaces she created to stop and reflect. I did feel like I needed someone else with whom I could discuss what I read. There is so much here. It would really help to hear others interpretations and suggestions.
