Surviving the City | Tasha Spillett

Pickpick

Among women in Canada and the U.S., indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people are more likely to be murdered or go missing.

This graphic novel follows two teenage girls, best friends, who each have their own struggles. Throughout the story the teens are supported by other indigenous women and their ancestors.

This is a great read to shed light on this epidemic of violence.

Cherokee America | Margaret Verble

Pickpick

Cherokee “Check” America Singer is the mother of 5 boys and caring for her dying husband.

Living in the Cherokee Nation in the late 1800‘s, Check‘s mixed heritage and her household of white and African American family and staff, mixed with hunting for treasure, murder, and the struggle for national sovereignty make for a fascinating Western inspired by the author‘s family.
