Pickpick

Based on the author‘s own life as a mixed heritage Cree/Lakota/Scottish woman, this quiet novel follows a girl from childhood years to adult motherhood in British Columbia. Each short chapter has a teaching message about issues such as belonging, racism, alcoholism, self esteem, residential schools, the sixties scoop, and reconnecting to cultural traditions and spirituality. Wholesome #IndigenousLit, suitable for teens. #canadianauthor

Lindy Is it just me, or does this cover remind anyone else of feminine hygiene packaging? 1y
Augustdana 🤣🤣🤣🤣 now that you mention it! Needs more pink! How will I know it‘s for women if it‘s not all pink? 1y
KathyR It's the blue of the Tampax box for sure. 1y
Lindy @Augustdana Good point about pink, and this light shade of turquoise seems also to be reserved for women, as in the case of tampax ( @KathyR ‘s comment.) 1y

The Marrow Thieves | Cherie Dimaline
post image

In The Marrow Thieves, the Indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream. Cherie Dimaline will be at #emwf18 to read from her powerful novel, which offers a cautionary tale that readers of all ages can learn from. bit.ly/2lzAYZR #canlit #YAlit #IndigenousLit

I finally got my hands on this poetry collection out from Graywolf this year. I'm going to go ensconce myself in her words outside in the sun. 🌾☀️

Tomson Highway wrote this delightful #diversepicturebook about a family's ice fishing expedition in dual text, Cree (his first language) and English. Brian Deines' luminous illustrations are full of life. Note the boy's braided hair, typical for contemporary Cree. #indigenouslit #nativebooks

Happy (slightly belated) birthday, Leslie Marmon Silko! Her books Ceremony & Almanac of the Dead are great looks at colonialism, racism, gender, & life as a Laguna Pueblo woman. 🏜

👋🏼 Hi to all the Aussies on here! Happy #AustraliaDay! In light of Australia's colonial history, I compiled some books by Aboriginal authors for those interested in learning more about its indigenous stories and voices. I haven't read many of them since they aren't as widely available in the US, but I am changing that this year. ✊🏽

Any more great Australian #AboriginalBooks you recommend? I'd love more suggestions.

#InvasionDay #IndigenousLit

slategreyskies I love The Bone People! Keri Hulme is such a creative and expressive writer. I could read this book over and over again. :) 3y
MrsMalaprop Hi from Western Australia 😊. I have a beautiful Nyoongar (Aboriginal People of the south west of WA) son ❤. I've read quite a few books by Australian Aboriginal authors including Am I Black Enough (pictured here). Carpentaria by Alexis Wright is another and I recently posted about Anita Heiss's book of poetry I'm Not Racist But. Heiss compiled an anthology of Australian Aboriginal literature too. That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott is another 👍. 3y
BookishFeminist @SMW Oh I ran across That Deadman Dance when looking up books and didn't have enough room in the collage. 😂 These are all fantastic recommendations, thank you! I'm looking forward to reading all of them. 3y

BookishFeminist @slategreyskies She's such a wonderful writer. I wish she had more fiction! But alas. 3y
LeeRHarry The Tall Man is fantastic 😍 and I really need to read some Anita Heiss! I have had The Bone People on my shelf for years but still haven't got to it! Another good NZ Maori fiction writer is Witi Ihimaera - Whale Rider 💕 3y
Jae Blood by Tony Birch; Not Quite Men,No Longer Boys by K.C. Laughton; Heat and Light by Ellen van Neerven. We've struggled through yet another Invasion Day. Good news is that the debate about changing the date and purpose of the event is now very public. Great hopes for the future! 3y
Nebklvr Loved The Bone People 3y
Gillyreads Alexis Wright is one of my favourite authors, highly recommend anything she's written. 3y

Dorianna I've been hoping to read more Native and Indigenous lit this year. Thanks for the post. The Beginning and End of Rape really interests me. 3y
BookishFeminist @Dorianna That one is written by a former professor of mine. I'm really excited to finally read it! She does such great work 3y
BookishFeminist @haileyhugsbooks 😂 if you ever make your way to D.C., feel free! 3y
BookishFeminist @Yamich49 I was really happy I found them! A couple have been on my buy list for a while and are never stocked. Love indie bookstores 💓 (edited) 3y
