Om Our Story

A collection of original stories written by some of the countrys most celebrated Aboriginal writers, and inspired by pivotal events in the countrys history.Inspired by history, Our Story is a beautifully illustrated collection of original stories from some of Canadas most celebrated Aboriginal writers.Asked to explore seminal moments in Canadian history from an Aboriginal perspective, these ten acclaimed authors have travelled through our countrys past to discover the moments that shaped our nation and its people. Drawing on their skills as gifted storytellers and the unique perspectives their heritage affords, the contributors to this collection offer wonderfully imaginative accounts of what its like to participate in history. From a tale of Viking raiders to a story set during the Oka crisis, the authors tackle a wide range of issues and events, taking us into the unknown, while also bringing the familiar into sharper focus.Our Story brings together an impressive array of voices Inuk, Cherokee, Ojibway, Cree, and Salish to name just a few from across the country and across the spectrum of First Nations. These are the novelists, playwrights, journalists, activists, and artists whose work is both Aboriginal and uniquely Canadian.Brought together to explore and articulate their peoples experience of our countrys shared history, these authors grace, insight, and humour help all Canadians understand the forces and experiences that have made us who we are.Maria Campbell Tantoo Cardinal Tomson Highway Drew Hayden Taylor Basil Johnston Thomas King Brian Maracle Lee Maracle Jovette Marchessault Rachel Qitsualik
