Nunatsiaq Online : Young Inuit carve out a living on Montreal’s streets | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"The eagle feathers painted on the front entrance of the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal might be misleading.

 

But while the centre is an important venue for the local First Nations community, make no mistake — the NFCM at 2001 St. Laurent Blvd. has one of the strongest Inuit presences in the city."

A First Nations story, gracefully told by Richard Wagamese

A First Nations story, gracefully told by Richard Wagamese | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Respect is one thing; attention is quite another.
Despite a long and rightly lauded career, Richard Wagamese has never received the attention his work so richly deserves. A multiple prizewinner, Wagamese’s books have inexplicably slipped just under the surface of public awareness (and don’t get me started on how his last novel Indian Horse, one of the best books of 2012, somehow failed to appear on the radar of the major literary prizes, an oversight which still makes me reel).

Guest Post: Joseph Bruchac on "You Don't Look Indian."

 By Joseph Bruchac for Cynthia Leitich Smith's Cynsations
"You don’t look like an Indian.
Ever heard anyone say that? It’s a safe bet that you have if you’re a contemporary Native American. Or, as my friends in Canada put it, a member of a First Nation. And those were the exact words that I heard this past Saturday. Standing in front of a group of fifty sixth and seventh graders at Henry Hudson Middle School (And no, I shall not go into a rant about its namesake right now) in the Bronx. "
