Are you a born and raised Canadian? Are you indigenous to this land? A newcomer to Canada? Do you hear stories of your elders’ fight for this land, or their journey to relocate to Canada? This book illustrates the diverse search for identity and belonging each woman faces and the collective spirit she is building among her Northern sisters, the day-to-day grind, and the behind closed doors secrets we face in our nation.
For Golden Brick Road Publishing House, as a proudly Indigenous owned company, it’s about honouring the Indigenous arts through Indigenous authors, and celebrating their accomplishments.
As an organization, we at GBR believe that we have a responsibility to nurture and empower leaders for social change, because empowered leaders inspire communities. When we honour and celebrate indigenous authors, we want to empower communities to start conversations about the history of this land. Not only can we learn, but we can grow and move forward by using our voices and put pen to paper. We encourage you, the reader, to continue the conversation of what it means to honour and celebrate Indigenous culture.
