From Sibert Honor–winning author Traci Sorell and Caldecott Medal–winning artist Michaela Goade comes a heartwarming picture book about a Native American family and the joy of moving back to their ancestral land. Today is a day of excitement—it’s time to move! As a young Cherokee girl says goodbye to the swing, the house, and the city she's called home her whole life, she readies herself for the upcoming road trip. While her mother drives, the girl draws the changing landscape outside her window. She looks forward to the end of the journey, where she'll eat the feast her family has prepared, play in the creek with her cousins, and settle into the new rhythm of home. With warm, expressive artwork and spare, lyrical prose, the story of a young girl’s move toward rather than away from home unfolds.

From Oceania to North America, indigenous peoples have created storytelling traditions of incredible depth and diversity. The term 'indigenous storywork' has come to encompass the sheer breadth of ways in which indigenous storytelling serves as a historical record, as a form of teaching and learning, and as an expression of indigenous culture and identity. But such traditions have too often been relegated to the realm of myth and legend, recorded as fragmented distortions, or erased altogether. Decolonizing Research brings together indigenous researchers and activists from Canada, Australia and New Zealand to assert the unique value of indigenous storywork as a focus of research, and to develop methodologies that rectify the colonial attitudes inherent in much past and current scholarship. By bringing together their own indigenous perspectives, and by treating indigenous storywork on its own terms, the contributors illuminate valuable new avenues for research, and show how such reworked scholarship can contribute to the movement for indigenous rights and self-determination.

When eight-year-old Irene is removed from her First Nations family to live in a residential school she is confused, frightened, and terribly homesick. She tries to remember who she is and where she came from, despite the efforts of the nuns who are in charge at the school and who tell her that she is not to use her own name but instead use the number they have assigned to her. When she goes home for summer holidays, Irene's parents decide never to send her and her brothers away again. But where will they hide? And what will happen when her parents disobey the law?

In Mi'kmaw, three similarly shaped words have drastically different meanings: kesalul means "I love you"; kesa'lul means "I hurt you"; and ke'sa'lul means "I put you into the fire." Spoken word artist Rebecca Thomas' first poetry collection is at once a meditation on navigating life and love as a second-generation Residential School survivor, a lesson in unlearning, and a rallying cry for Indigenous justice, empathy, and equality.

Votre parcours apprentissage autour de la Journée du chandail orange. La Journée du chandail orange, une commémoration annuelle qui se tient le 30 septembre, est également connue comme la Journée nationale de la vérité et de la réconciliation. C'est une journée officielle visant à honorer les survivants des pensionnats et leurs familles, et commémorer les enfants qui ne sont pas rentrés chez eux. À la base, elle a été conçue comme une manière de poursuivre les discussions autour de la réalité des pensionnats à Williams Lake et dans la région Cariboo de la Colombie-Britannique, au Canada, mais le mouvement s'est étendu sur l'ensemble du territoire de l'île de la Tortue, et au-delà. Ce manuel cherche à engendrer des alliés qui suivront la voie de la réconciliation et clameront haut et fort que chaque enfant compte. Cette édition spéciale et abrégée du livre primé La Journée du chandail orange: le 30 septembre explore un grand nombre de sujets importants, y compris les conséquences historiques, générationnelles et actuelles des pensionnats sur les peuples autochtones; l'historique du mouvement de la Journée du chandail orange; et la façon dont on peut prendre part à la Journée nationale de la vérité et de la réconciliation. Avec des questions de réflexion en fin de chapitre et avec une série d'oeuvres d'art soumises par des élèves, les lecteurs sont invités à explorer la façon dont ils peuvent, avec d'autres, participer à la réconciliation relative aux pensionnats. 15 % de recettes issues de la vente de ce livre sont versées à la Société du chandail orange.

When an Indigenous group demands the local schools name be changed, rifts are formed within the community and the legacies of who we honour from history are challenged. This mystery/adventure set in a small BC lumber town is a fictional account of an event that is similar to many across the country – a sudden conflict over a school name and the historic figure it recognizes. Educator and childrens’ novelist David Starr builds a compelling fictional narrative using elements drawn from the history of resource exploitation at the expense of First Nations’ communities. In this book, the son of the owners of the town’s lumber mill goes to a school named after his grandfather. When his grandfather’s statue is splashed with paint as a protest, his best friend from the nearby reserve supports the protest. To defend his grandfather’s reputation, he digs into town history to learn more about his family. What he learns about the experience of the nearby First Nation community leads to a whole new understanding of his family’s legacy – and the town’s troubling past.

Traveling to be reunited with her family in the arctic, 10-year-old Margaret Pokiak can hardly contain her excitement. It’s been two years since her parents delivered her to the school run by the dark-cloaked nuns and brothers. Coming ashore, Margaret spots her family, but her mother barely recognizes her, screaming, “Not my girl.” Margaret realizes she is now marked as an outsider. And Margaret is an outsider: she has forgotten the language and stories of her people, and she can’t even stomach the food her mother prepares. However, Margaret gradually relearns her language and her family’s way of living. Along the way, she discovers how important it is to remain true to the ways of her people—and to herself. Highlighted by archival photos and striking artwork, this first-person account of a young girl’s struggle to find her place will inspire young readers to ask what it means to belong.
