The Strong Nations community has been growing! Unfortunately, due to this growth, we have also been experiencing issues with our newsletter. Some people have not been receiving the newsletter altogether! We apologize for the inconvenience and have moved on to another way to send our news out to everyone. While we are transitioning we might experience some minor hiccups, so if you can please indulge us with a little bit of patience while we fix any issues that arrive we would be very grateful. Thank you!

We would like to thank everyone for the great positive feedback we have been receiving about the Strong Stories series since their launch in April. The Strong Stories is 3 sets of 8 books written by authors from the Coast Salish, Tlingit and Kanyen’kehà:ka Nations. All of the books have been written for late Grade 2, Grade 3, early Grade 4 and are authentic. They are available individually or as a set of 8 or in multiples for guided reading. For more information please go to:

An exciting new book coming out this month is “Secret Path”. Secret Path is a ten song album by Gord Downie with a graphic novel by illustrator Jeff Lemire that tells the story of Chanie “Charlie” Wenjack, a twelve-year-old boy who died in flight from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School fifty years ago. Proceeds from Secret Path will be donated to The Gord Downie Secret Path Fund for Truth and Reconciliation via The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at The University of Manitoba. You can pre-order and find more information on the Book Page here.
