Originally released as a free e-book and inspired by a 2016 speaking tour by the late Arthur Manuel, the audiobook contains two essays from Arthur Manuel, described as the Nelson Mandela of Canada and essays from the renowned Taiaiake Alfred, Glen Coulthard, Russell Diabo, Beverly Jacobs, Melina Laboucan-Massimo, Kanahus Manuel, Jeffrey McNeil-Seymour, Pamela Palmater, Shiri Pasternak, Nicole Schabus, Senator Murray Sinclair, Sharon Venne and Bev Sellars.

The book provides a variety of Indigenous perspectives on the history of colonialism, current Indigenous activism and resistance. It is essential reading for settlers in so-called Canada. Now in audiobook form, this collection of voices serves as a reminder that the more we understand Indigenous Nationhood and Indigenous Peoples’ inherent rights to the land, the healthier we and the earth can become in our shared existence.

Beginning June 22, the audiobook will also be available through the FPSE website (fpse.ca/decolonization-manual) and through Apple Podcasts and Google Play.
