Please join us in congratulating Heidi Bohaker on winning the 2020-21 Joseph Brant Award for her book, Doodem and Council Fire: Anishinaabe Governance Through Alliance, published by University of Toronto Press (2020).

Doodem and Council Fire deals with the world of the Anishinaabe people and the importance of doodem to Anishinaabe identity. Published for the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History by the University of Toronto, this volume comprises an interdisciplinary socio-legal and ethnohistorical approach that historicizes doodemag as a living tradition central to Anishinaabe governance, and to Anishinaabe law.
