Frequently bought together
"Our Story is an impressive collection of original fiction. . . . Brian Maracle’s retelling of the Iroquois creation myth is . . . powerful and haunting. . . . Jovette Marchessault’s 'Moon of the Dancing Sons' is, simply, beautiful and heartrending, while Rachel Qitsualik’s 'Skraeling'is a narrative of the highest order. . . . Our Story bridges native and European narrative traditions with considerable force."
—Quill and Quire
From the Inside Flap
Inspired by history, Our Story is a beautifully illustrated collection of original stories from some of Canada's most celebrated Aboriginal writers.
Asked to explore seminal moments in Canadian history from an Aboriginal perspective, these ten acclaimed authors have travelled through our country's past to discover the moments that shaped our nation and its people.
Drawing on their skills as gifted storytellers and the unique perspectives their heritage affords, the contributors to this collection offer wonderfully imaginative accounts of what it's like to participate in history. From a tale of Viking raiders to a story set during the Oka crisis, the authors tackle a wide range of issues and events, taking us into the unknown, while also bringing the familiar into sharper focus.
Our Story brings together an impressive array of voices -- Inuk, Cherokee, Ojibway, Cree, and Salish to name just a few -- from across the country and across the spectrum of First Nations. These are the novelists, playwrights, journalists, activists, and artists whose work is both Aboriginal and uniquely Canadian.
Brought together to explore and articulate their peoples' experience of our country's shared history, these authors' grace, insight, and humour help all Canadians understand the forces and experiences that have made us who we are.
