Recap of Indigenous Reads – Week 4


June is National Indigenous History Month (NIHM), and OPL invites you to celebrate at the Library!


NIHM is a great opportunity to learn more about Indigenous cultures, history, and literature. Explore OPL’s collection of books, films and music by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit authors and artists.


Throughout the month, we are highlighting books by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit authors via our Twitter account. Here is the weekly, final, recap of the recommended reads, in English and French.
