Tomson Highway’s new book is here! A survey of Indigenous literature published in Canada between 1980 and 2010, From Oral to Written is now available!

From Oral to Written is the story of the Indigenous literary tradition, written – in multiple Indigenous languages, in French, and in English – by a brave, committed, hard-working, and inspired community of exceptional individuals – from the Haida Nation of Haida Gwaii to the Inuit of Baffin Island to the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. Leading Indigenous author Tomson Highway surveys what he sees as the first wave of Indigenous writers published in Canada, highlighting the most gifted authors and the best stories they have told, offering non-Indigenous readers access to reconciliation and understanding, and at the same time engendering among Indigenous readers pride in a stellar body of work.
