Joseph Boyden edits new anthology highlighting plight of First Nations women | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Sometimes, lamentable and heinous acts bring people together. For author Joseph Boyden, it was yet another violent assault on a First Nations woman that first angered him, but then inspired him to reach out to fellow artists and thinkers.

 

The inspiration led to the new anthology Kwe: Standing With Our Sisters, which features new writing and original artwork by more than 50 contributors, including Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Gord Downie, Thomas King, Lee Maracle, and Yann Martel.

Stickhandling: First Nations played big role in carving out hockey history

Stickhandling: First Nations played big role in carving out hockey history | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
From above, the Keith Miller Arena near Elmsdale is a blur of tiny bodies. Cheryl Maloney stands in the heated lookout room above the rink and searches for her 10-year-old son, Chase. Then she spots him in his mustard-yellow jersey with his dark hair spilling out from under his helmet — a streak of colour moving across the ice.

Chase started playing hockey when he was three. He held his first stick when he was just 13 months old — a cheap mini stick Maloney picked up from the grocery store.

As a kid, David Alexander Robertson felt detached from his Swampy Cree heritage. But as the Winnipeg writer-educator grew older, he felt more of a need to connect with his culture.
