Qua's Book Pick: National Indigenous History Month

by Aliya Dalfen on 2022-06-02T11:41:00-04:00 in Collections Spotlight, Indigenous | Comments


For National Indigenous History Month, Humber Libraries is collaborating with Indigenous Education & Engagement to highlight new and diverse Indigenous voices, histories and experiences across Turtle Island. Each Friday in June, a member of the IE&E community will recommend a book that has influenced, moved or inspired them. In turn, the library will share a recommended reading list that complements their selection of the week. 


Qua's Pick: All the Way: My Life on Ice by Jordin Tootoo

"I enjoy this book because my favourite genre is memoir and because I love when Indigenous athletes are playing elite levels like the NHL. In his book Jordin shares his own struggles with mental health, addiction and grief. This book is a reminder to me that you are brave when you seek support. If you are on your own healing journey, you can start with this book, and end with signing up for Noojimo Health."

Quazance Boissoneau is from Garden River First Nation, on the north shores of Lake Huron. Her community is uniquely situated in the bawating region of Ontario, which translates to "the rapids" in Anishnaabemowin. The bawating region is an original meeting area for Indigenous peoples of Ontario. She is also a member of the bear clan.  Qua is the manager of Indigenous Education and Engagement at Humber.
