The Sechelt First Nation, on the occasion of their 26th Annual Celebration of Self-Government on 9th October 2012, formally honoured the contributions that Talonbooks authors Randy Bouchard and Dorothy Kennedy’s 1970s ethnographic and linguistic research is making to the cultural strength of this forward-looking First Nation.
After the more formal proceedings in the presence of Sechelt community members, Ralph Maud presented Sechelt Chief Garry Feschuk and his son, Steven, with copies of Maud’s 1978 Talonbooks’ edition of the work of an earlier researcher among the Sechelt, Charles Hill-Tout (The Salish People, Vol. IV), along with Maud’s A Guide to B.C. Indian Myth and Legend (Talonbooks, 1982).
Last evening at Vancouver Community College (Clark campus), about 130 people celebrated the launch of the book They Called Me Number One, which is currently in second place on the BC Bestsellers list.Wednesday May 22, 2013 in Meta-Talon

Joanne Arnott interviews Wanda John-Kehewin about her new book In the Dog House:
I can’t really say there were many poets of the past that influenced my writing. I think when I really started to be inspired was when I heard that there were other Native writers, and that wasn’t until I moved to the West Coast in 1991. For some reason I didn’t think it was actually something an “Indian” could do. There weren’t any books in the library that were by First Nations people when I was growing up.
