Description

Mamaskatch, Darrel J. McLeod’s 2018 memoir of growing up Cree in Northern Alberta, was a publishing sensation - winning the Governor General’s Award for Nonfiction, shortlisted for many other major prizes, and translated into French and German editions. In Peyakow, McLeod continues the poignant story of his impoverished youth, beset by constant fears of being dragged down by the self-destruction and deaths of those closest to him as he battles the bullying of White classmates, copes with the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, and endures painful separation from his family and culture. With steely determination, he triumphs: now, elementary teacher; now, school principal; now, head of an Indigenous delegation to the UN in Geneva; now, executive in the Government of Canada - and now, a celebrated author.

Brutally frank but buoyed throughout by McLeod’s unquenchable spirit, Peyakow - a title borrowed from the Cree word for “one who walks alone” - is an inspiring account of triumph against unimaginable odds. McLeod’s perspective as someone whose career path has crossed both sides of the Indigenous/White chasm resonates with particular force in today’s Canada.

Compelling narrative

Remarkable autobiography of McLeod's unusual life. Gives a point of view not easily open to those of us from the WASP mainstream. The earlier chapters give the reader a greater understanding of the politics (both internal and relating to mainstream) of First Nations peoples. I found that the narrative thread sort of wandered as the book progressed, but still connected emotionally with everything that was being said. This is a deeply personal story. I am blown away that McLeod turned out as well as he did, given the tragedies that surrounded him. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the learning. Listened to many chapters over again.

so true

I loved its true to life format and exposure of the injustices done to our indigenous peoples. the author's understanding of the different dialects in different areas and cultures was truly amazing.

An honest and lovely story

Daryl weaves a heart wrenching tale and says so much more than the words that are written. A great reminder of our humanity.

Not a quick read for me

I must say, I struggled to get through this book but only because it took a lot of time to digest the reality of it. This is a book you need to study and ponder and reflect on. I will never understand how we are so fearful of anyone that we think is "different" from ourselves and how that gives us "rights" to be so disrespectful and "superior" ; so filled with hatred for our fellow humans . It really costs nothing to be kind.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and history and the different "voices" telling the story.

confusing

a critical review. the story ran back and fourth with no real story to weave. almost like reading his diary but only segments. a tough life I don't understand but i got the sense he's self centered and I'm assuming hurt a lot of people in his life. no body is perfect I also get that. he had some great insight to Canada and the politics behind the scenes and it seemed like a he had many accomplishments in his career with an always difficult government. I get why this book was made at a time like today. a sexually confused indigenous with transgender siblings and family. publisher must have thought perfect but I think with some guidance this story could have been a lot better. great performance by the reader. I think that's why i kept listening and in the end maybe i just don't get it being a person who didn't live a life like his.

In depth with the history

It was one of the best I’ve read.. leading me through the history of what is today and what brought us here.. all of the injustices facing the original nation of this country.

Probably better in written form

The jumps in time and places made it hard for me to follow the story. And I didn't find it very captivating. I stopped listening twice and went through other audiobooks in those breaks.
