Helen Knott: In My Own Moccasins


Join us for an author reading and discussion from Helen Knott about her memoir, In My Own Moccasins: A Memoir of Resilience, an unflinching memoir of addiction, intergenerational trauma, and courage.

Additional Information

Part of RPL's Writes of Spring Programming Series. 

This program is conducted through Zoom. 

Helen Knott, a highly accomplished Indigenous woman, seems to have it all. But in her memoir, she offers a different perspective. In My Own Moccasins is an unflinching account of addiction, intergenerational trauma, and the wounds brought on by sexual violence. It is also the story of sisterhood, the power of ceremony, the love of family, and the possibility of redemption.  With gripping moments of withdrawal, times of spiritual awareness, and historical insights going back to the signing of Treaty 8 by her great-great grandfather, Chief Bigfoot, her journey exposes the legacy of colonialism, while reclaiming her spirit.
