How can North Americans come to terms with the lamentable clash between indigenous and settler cultures, faiths, and attitudes toward creation? Showcasing a variety of voices both traditional and Christian, native and non-native Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry offers up alternative histories, radical theologies, and poetic, life-giving memories that can unsettle our souls and work toward reconciliation.


This book is intended for all who are interested in healing historical wounds of racism, stolen land, and cultural exploitation. Essays on land use, creation, history, and faith appear among poems and reflections by people across ethnic and religious divides. The writers do not always agree in fact, some are bound to raise readers' defenses. But they represent the hard truths that we must hear before reconciliation can come.

About the Author:

Steve Heinrichs lives in Treaty 1 Territory, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, along with his spouse Ann and their three children, Abby, Aiden, and Isabelle. A former reservist with Christian Peacemaker Teams in Palestine, Steve pastored a Mennonite church in northern British Columbia in a predominantly white, defunct mining village neighboring a Carrier community. Currently Steve is Indigenous relations director for Mennonite Church Canada. When he's not traveling around the country, or fretting about the state of the world, he enjoys chasing his kids around the house, drinking tea, and reading books. On Sunday mornings, Steve and family walk a few blocks to join Hope Mennonite Church--a community of activists, doubters, and Jesus-followers--for worship, Word, and nursery chaos.

Review:

Superb! For centuries our misunderstandings and conflicts have accumulated . . . In this book the issues are opened, offering information, insights, and resolutions that amaze our usual thinking. Read it carefully; with a prayer for understanding.
Rudy Wiebe, novelist, co-author with Yvonne Johnson of Stolen Life: The Journey of a Cree Woman

This invaluable collection calls us to decolonize theology and interrogate how the logics of settler colonialism have infused Christianity. At the same time, it refuses the temptation to replace one metanarrative with another.
Andrea Smith, author of Native Americans and the Christian Right

Steve Heinrichs has edited a courageous and urgent book. The voices that speak here sound from outside the theopolitical, social-economic domination system of our society. The book is an invitation to rethink both policy and attitude. Attention must be paid!
Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary

There is no cheap grace available in these pages, but there is great encouragement to move ourselves toward the deepest, most demanding places of hope in our mutual search for a truly just and compassionate life together with all creation. Every participant in these conversations urges us to take all the great, imperative risks of spiritual and intellectual growth, insisting on our deepest truths as our guide.
Vincent Harding, veteran activist and scholar, Illif School of Theology

Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry offers precisely the sort of dialogue essential to the establishment at long last of respectful relations between peoples in this hemisphere. Such conversations are necessary to forging a sustainable relationship between humans and the rest of creation. Steve Heinrichs is to be commended for having assembled this book.
Ward Churchill, author of Struggle for the Land

Mind blowing. Once you read the book, you will never look at the world, or your place within it, the same way again. The voices within these covers offer sobering and challenging truths. I am uncomfortably humbled.
--Christine J. Sabas, attorney and advocate with Christian Peacemaker Teams
