Inventive sci-fi writing with a Canadian First Nations twist that is often funny and always thought provoking.

Science fiction among the Native North Americans. Hence the word "Chief" instead of the usual "Leader" in the phrase/title, I guess. Didn't work for me.

This is a very fun and unique collection of science fiction short stories, all with First Nations pov. I liked some more than others like in any short story collection, but some were great and I especially liked how the author uses humor expertly to lighten some of the social commentary.

A collection of sci-fi short stories that touch on past and current realities of Indigenous life (particularly in Canada). The blend of Indigenous beliefs and sci-fi was seamless and added an interesting new angle to sci-fi plot devices (time travel, aliens, hidden messages, etc.).

The author explores classical science-fiction themes from the point of view of First Nation culture. The result: highly original stories, most of them humourous, while others are touching. I should mention that the first nation communities presented all are modern-day communities so it is not idyllic communities living in the woods before Europeens arrived. Highly recommended. And you will never look at a dream catcher the same way again.
