Strong Nations Authenticity Labels

We are excited to launch our new Strong Nations Authenticity Labels that are used as our criteria to determine the authenticity of a book that we will sell in our store. Although we have used our criteria for the past 2 years, this is a huge undertaking for us to go back into our entire collection and re-visit every book that we have added over the past 8 years. Please note then that books with no tagging at all have not gone through our newest criteria.

The labels are as follows: Authentic Indigenous Text Label; Authentic Indigenous Artwork Label; Text Content Label; Author, Illustrator, and Editor Territory/Nation Labels; and Canadian Content Label.

Over the years we've had so many requests for well-loved books and themes and have added in many resources that simply connect to Indigenous content. An example of that are books with wolves, ravens, bears, and frogs that are both fiction and nonfiction. 

We are happy to share our criteria. Download a PDF of the Strong Nations Authenticity Labels here: Strong Nations Authenticity LabelsPlease note: This is a living document that will be updated as we all grow and learn.
