Memoirs & Life Stories
Indigenous Authors in the Spotlight Series
Our fall 2021 spotlight shines on authors writing their own stories through prose, poetry or other forms of autobiographical expression(s), and on Elders telling their stories through oral history interviews. We feature authors and collaborators from numerous nations and communities: Inuit, Innu, Huron Wendat, Ojibwe, Nehiyawak Cree, Métis, Sto:lo, Nlaka'pamux, Nisga'a and more. Yet, our highlighted entries represent only a small sampling of works in this area of study. Browse our bibliographies to find many additional memoir selections, including a variety of very recent memoirs by young writers and a growing collection of residential school life stories.
