September 2021: Adult Readers
Updated: Apr 8
For September 2021, we are featuring Métis writer and lawyer Chelsea Vowel's 'Indigenous Writes: A Guide To First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Issues In Canada'. Vowel's book is divided into 5 parts: The Terminology of Relationships, Culture and Identity, Myth-busting, State Violence, and Land, Learning, Law, and Treaties. This is essential reading for anyone who is committed to working toward reconciliation.

Wear an orange shirt on International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples (August 9) and on Orange Shirt Day (September 30).
These important days mean justice and awareness for Indigenous peoples. They are days to acknowledge and work toward reconciliation.
Make sure you purchase a shirt from a legit site which supports Indigenous communities.
You can purchase an Every Child Matters orange shirt from https://www.orangeshirtday.org/shirts--gifts.html
