For Indigenous History Month, we want to highlight the Exploring Indigenous Narratives and Worldviews collection. By exploring the collection, we hope you'll dedicate time to begin or continue learning how we can work toward reconciliation and decolonization. This collection uplifts the voices and experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples through research and storytelling.

The collection was curated by Indigenous Initiatives and the Indigenous Student Centre at U of G. It highlights Indigenous writers, content, and research frameworks through a rich range of literature, including research texts, children’s books, novels, and storytelling and memoirs. The collection also features works by U of G authors Brittany Luby, Kim Anderson, Thomas King, and David MacDonald.  

We are excited to share this valuable collection with the University of Guelph community as part of our efforts to move towards decolonization and reconciliation with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, communities, and lands. “There is an expansive diversity and richness in the Indigenous narratives shared within the collection. We hope that it will introduce and expand readers understanding of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples and their cultures, worldviews, and lived experiences,” said Cara Wehkamp, assistant vice-president, Indigenous Initiatives.

Some of the works featured in the collection are:
