In recent weeks, we have had the opportunity to host several Indigenous authors during two fantastic events: Bingo littéraire Kwahiatonhk and First Person.

With their powerful stories, poems and memoirs, these authors offered us many edifying and inspirational moments.

By promoting exchange and mutual knowledge, these #IndigenousReads are a wonderful tool in the reconciliation process.

In case you were unable to attend Bingo littéraire or First Person, here are the reads that were discussed at those events:

 

First Person :
