National Indigenous Peoples Day

Talonbooks publishes work of the highest literary merit in the genres of non-fiction, drama, poetry, and fiction, and among our world-class authors are many Indigenous people living in Canada. Over our fifty-year history, we have published core titles in the Canadian bibliography of Indigenous work, and we continue to publish and keep in print one of the leading Canadian lists of Indigenous authors.

We at Talonbooks commemorate National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 and offer a list of six must-read Indigenous titles published by Talonbooks to date:

1. They Called Me Number One: Secrets and Survival at an Indian Residential School (2012) by Bev Sellars.
