Braided learning : illuminating Indigenous presence through art and story

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Indigenous activism have made many Canadians uncomfortably aware of how little they know about First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. In Braided Learning, Lenape-Potawatomi scholar and educator Susan Dion shares her approach to learning and teaching about Indigenous histories and perspectives. Métis leader Louis Riel illuminated the connection between creativity and identity in his declaration, "My people will sleep for a hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirits back." -- Provided by publisher.
