Description
Storytelling is a way that many Indigenous peoples pass on history, traditions, knowledge, and wisdom from one generation to another. Indigenous authors use storytelling to share contemporary knowledge with young people as well. Nowhere is this more apparent than in how Indigenous peoples are telling the story of the legacy residential schools in children’s literature. The purpose of this study is to identify children's books (PreK-12) authored by Canadian Indigenous people that include content related to the residential school experience, its legacy, and the way forward. More than 100 books met the inclusion criteria for the study. These were reviewed by one or more of the researchers, who identified and came to consensus on themes relevant to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action and the 10 Principles of Reconciliation. This poster presents selected themes, and highlights examples from the subset of books relating specifically to the experience and legacy of residential schools.
