The Lesser Blessed | The Official Website of the Film

The Lesser Blessed by Richard Van Camp is set to become a movie.

 

From Chapters.ca:

 

A powerful coming-of-age story -- edgy, stark, and at times, darkly funny that centers around Larry, a Native teenager trying to cope with a painful past and find his place in a confusing and stressful modern world.

 

Larry is a Dogrib Indian growing up in the small northern town of Fort Simmer. His tongue, his hallucinations and his fantasies are hotter than the centre of the sun. At sixteen, he loves Iron Maiden, the North and Juliet Hope, the high school tramp.

In this powerful and very funny first novel, Richard Van Camp gives us one of the most original teenage characters in Canadian fiction. Skinny as spaghetti, nervy and self-deprecating, Larry is an appealing mixture of bravado and vulnerability. His past holds many terrors: an abusive father, blackouts from sniffing gasoline, an accident that killed several of his cousins, and he''s now being hunted and haunted by a pack of blue monkeys. But through his new friendship with Johnny, a Metis who just moved to town, he''s now ready to face his memories and his future.

"Last summer Canada Writes presented an original series by some of the country's leading and emerging Aboriginal writers. “The Way Forward” was part of the CBC’s groundbreaking “8th Fire” project and looked into the Indigenous experience from a literary perspective.  

 The Idle No More movement has brought Aboriginal issues once again into the spotlight, and we thought it was time to revisit these essays and stories." includes links to essays and stories.

Ryan McMahon's Powwow Shades Of Grey twitter novel is taking off - CBC Manitoba

Like James, Winnipeg comedian Ryan McMahon was just having a little fun when he tweeted "She had dirt under her fingernails from chasing her kids around the powwow grounds all day & she smelled like camp fire. #PowwowShadesOfGrey." Now McMahon, who is on the road to becoming one of Canada's most popular Aboriginal comedians, is gaining new followers every day as he hammers out chapter five of Powwow Shades of Grey.
