520    "Eatenonha is the Wendat word for love and respect for the
       Earth and Mother Nature. For many Native peoples and 
       newcomers to North America, Canada is a motherland, an 
       Eatenonha--a land in which all can and should feel 
       included, valued, and celebrated. In Eatenonha Georges 
       Sioui presents the history of a group of Wendat known as 
       the Seawi Clan and reveals the deepest, most honoured 
       secrets possessed by his people, by all people who are 
       Indigenous, and by those who understand and respect 
       Indigenous ways of thinking and living. Providing a 
       glimpse into the lives, ideology, and work of his family 
       and ancestors, Sioui weaves a tale of the Wendat's 
       sparsely documented historical trajectory and his family's
       experiences on a reserve. Through an original retelling of
       the Indigenous commercial and social networks that existed
       in the northeast before European contact, the author 
       explains that the Wendat Confederacy was at the 
       geopolitical centre of a commonwealth based on peace, 
       trade, and reciprocity. This network, he argues, was a 
       true democracy, where all beings of all natures were 
       equally valued and respected and where women kept their 
       place at the centre of their families and communities. 
       Identifying Canada's first civilizations as the 
       originators of modern democracy, Eatenonha represents a 
       continuing quest to heal and educate all peoples through 
       an Indigenous way of comprehending life and the world."--
