Product description

Review

Chelsea Vowel presents a counternarrative to the foundational, historical, and living myths most Canadians grew up believing. She punctures the bloated tropes that have frozen Indigenous peoples in time, often to the vanishing point. Reading Indigenous Writes, you feel that you are having a conversation over coffee with a super-smart friend, someone who refuses to simplify, who chooses to amplify, who is unafraid to kick against the darkness. Branding Indigenous Writes as required reading would make it sound like literary All-Bran. It is not, and far from it. What this book really is, is medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide to getting you up to speed on Indigenous issues
By danVanBC on November 9, 2020
We never covered any kind of indigenous studies in school back in the seventies and eighties and I feel like this opened my eyes a lot. Chelsea Vowel has a clear and often wry look at a variety of often disturbing issues; she backs up all her own opinions with easy to research footnotes and gave me lots of links and resources to look further into each issue she addresses. This information should have been required reading for me in high school, especially being a settler in Kamloops, BC.
