Gilakas'la! (Welcome, come with all that you are!)
Terri & Ken Mack welcome you with all that we are!
We are both very grateful to be the owners of Strong Nations since July 2010. At this time we started our online presence and have grown it into what it is today with the help of our team. In 2012, we started our publishing house with the launch of our first set of Strong Readers. Our new additions to our product line are the Strong Learners, educational games, and Strong Learning Environments, a variety of product that reflects Indigenous Peoples in the classroom. In July of 2014 we made the move to a bricks and mortar location here in Nanaimo. We are now considered to be one of the largest Indigenous book stores in North America. It is with commitment and passion that we continue to bring the best Indigenous resources to all Nations.
