ReconciliAction: Best Kids’ Indigenous Books
2021 saw the tragic moments of too many unmarked graves being exposed on residential school sites. With the movement Every Child Matters grows, we were reminded of our responsibility to listen and to act, after offering a dignified burial to these children and communities the space to grieve. Twice Upon a Time is proud to have develop 2 new partnerships with the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation and the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation. Together with our long-time ally the Minwaashin Lodge, they can offer free books we donate to approximately 370 children.
Inspired by this, we embark on our 2022 campaign. Our goal is to offer Ottawa kids relevant materials by First Nations People, Métis and Inuit authors and featuring these communities’ stories, history, cultures, characters. We wish to expand our purchasing of books in this area with the help of Indigenous organizations’ representatives.
With your help, we can take charge of our collective commitment towards Reconciliation. We can impact children’s knowledge and understanding of each others’ cultures, contributions to society, and aspirations, early on so that, moving forward, next generations will know the truth and embody reconciliation themselves.
