-Kat Norris, is Coast Salish and Nez Perce & her maternal great great grandmother was from Musqueum. As survivor of the Kuper Island Residential School, she learned to be ashamed of her color and ancestry. At 19 years of age, she became involved with the American Indian Movement Leonard Peltier Defense committee where she learned not only pride but how to organize.

-Yves Engler has been dubbed “one of the most important voices on the Canadian Left today” (Briarpatch magazine) and “in the mould of I. F. Stone” (Globe and Mail). His books have been praised by Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Rick Salutin and many others.
