First Nations 101 by Lynda Gray
First Nations 101 is an informative and opinionated guide to First Nations issues. Written in an accessible style and with a wry sense of humor, Lynda Gray provides readers with a broad overview of the diverse and complex day-to-day realities of First Nations people. Jam-packed with information on more than 70 subjects including urbanization, veterans, feminism, appropriate questions to ask a First Nations person, child welfare, the medicine wheel, food access, Two-spirit (LGBT), residential schools, the land bridge theory, National Aboriginal History Month, and language preservation, First Nations 101 endeavors to leave readers with a better understanding of the shared history of First Nations people. Ultimately, the author calls upon all of us – individuals, communities, and governments – to play active roles in bringing about true reconciliation between First Nations and non-First Nations people.
Lynda Gray is of the Tsimshian Nation and the Gisbutwada Clan (Killer Whale). Her ancestral roots are in Lax Kw’alaams on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia.
