Description

The most diverse and comprehensive anthology of Indigenous literatures in Canada.

Over twenty years after the publication of its groundbreaking first edition, this collection continues to provide the most comprehensive coverage of Indigenous literatures within Canada available in one volume. Emphasizing the importance of the oral tradition, the newly revised and expanded anthology offers a diverse selection of graphic and short stories, songs, poems, plays, letters, and essays by exceptional writers from First Nations, Inuit, and Metis communities across Canada.

About the Authors
Armand Garnet Ruffo's work is strongly influenced by his Ojibway heritage. His first poetry collection, Opening in the Sky, was published in 1994 (Theytus Books). His work has also appeared in such anthologies as Looking at the Words of Our People (Theytus Books), Voices of The First Nations (McGraw Hill Ryerson), and Native Literature in Canada (Oxford University Press) as well as numerous literary journals including Dandelion, CVII, and Absinthe. In addition to his numerous publication credits, Ruffo has written several plays. Born in northern Ontario, at the Biscotasing where Grey Owl lived, Ruffo grew up with a photo of his uncle Jimmy and Archie Belaney hanging on his wall - Archie boarded at Ruffo's grandmother's. Since then, Ruffo has travelled extensively throughout Europe, North Africa, and South America. He has worked as a harvester of wild rice, journalist, editor, civil servant, and teacher. Ruffo has studied at York University, the University of Ottawa, and the University of Windsor. He now makes his home in Ottawa, where he is a lecturer and associate director of the Centre for Aboriginal Education, Research and Culture at Carleton University.
