Indigenous Voices: Sharing Our Stories
RPL’s newest collection puts Indigenous authors front and centre.
The Indigenous Voices collection focuses on writings by and about Indigenous peoples and cultures, created from lived experiences. These authors are sharing stories through fiction and non-fiction works ranging from graphic novels to memoirs.
Our hope is that this collection will make it easy for anyone who’s interested to learn more about about Indigenous experiences, history and culture, and to serve as a starting point to reading for reconciliation.
The collections are now on display at Central Library and our George Bothwell, Glen Elm, Sherwood Village and Sunrise Branches.
We currently have about 150 titles in the collection and will be adding new ones over time. We also welcome requests for new items, if you have recommendations or suggestions for titles we might add to Indigenous Voices.
More materials relating to Indigenous peoples and cultures can also be found in our general collections, at all RPL locations.
