In Indigenous Writes, Chelsea Vowel initiates myriad conversations about the relationship between Indigenous peoples and Canada. An advocate for Indigenous worldviews, the author discusses the fundamental issues—the terminology of relationships; culture and identity; myth-busting; state violence; and land, learning, law and treaties—along with wider social beliefs about these issues. She answers the questions that many people have on these topics to spark further conversations at home, in the classroom, and in the larger community.

I highly recommend this book.
If you feel reconciliation is important.
If you want to know more about Indigenous peoples and their viewpoint.
If you want to know in what ways even you may still be creating barriers to unity, you will want to read this book.
If you want a resource book, this will give you a chance to confirm that it is worth buying yourself a copy.

I'm currently reading it and agree with your assessment. I'm also doing an good u of Alberta course called "Indigenous Canada" online (via Coursera, a MOOC site , which some may know). More Canadians need to understand Indigenous issues better. For many, our formal education was poor on Indigenous Peoples. Does anyone know of a discussion group in Ottawa or beyond on Indigenous issues, truth and reconciliation etc., for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples?

If you live in Canada, read this book. I have yet to find a better, clearer and more apt voice to provide such a solid overview of such complex and deep subjects as the relationships between Native peoples and all those of us who came later.

If you want to understand the relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples in Canada, this is the book to read. This book is readable, funny and holds no punches. Highly recommended.
