Idle No More: Non-Indigenous responsibility to act | rabble.ca

Idle No More: Non-Indigenous responsibility to act | rabble.ca | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

I encourage all non-Indigenous people to:

-Know the history and the stories of elders of what has happened on this territory.

-Place decolonization at the centre of all progressive/social justice organizing you do.

-Read and understand the Indian Act and how this racist piece of legislation is used today.

-Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Be humble. Walk softly. Be kind. Be bold.

 

-Nora Loreto

The Evolution of Alice- David A Robertson | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

ISBN: 978-1-55379-518-6Grade: for grade 12 to adult 

This haunting, emotionally resonant story delivers us into the world of Alice, a single mother raising her three young daughters on the rez where she grew up. Alice has never had an easy life, but has managed to get by with the support of her best friend, Gideon, and her family. When an unthinkable loss occurs, Alice is forced onto a different path, one that will challenge her belief in herself and the world she thought she knew. The Evolution of Alice is the kaleidoscopic story of one woman’s place within the web of community. Peopled with unforgettable characters and told from multiple points of view, this is a novel where spirits are alive, forgiveness is possible, and love is the only thing that matters.
