Nations to Nations: Indigenous voices at Library and Archives Canada

A conversation between the CBC's Falen Johnson and contributing authors Elizabeth Kawenaa Montour, Heather Campbell and William Benoit

Nations to Nations: Indigenous Voices at Library and Archives Canada is a free multimedia e-book featuring 28 essays and over 140 images. Indigenous staff at Library and Archives Canada wrote the essays to offer personal interpretations of collection items such as journals, maps, artwork, photographs, publications and audiovisual recordings. This e-book provides unique perspectives of First Nations, Inuit and the Métis Nation, and it shows the diversity of the histories, languages and cultures of Indigenous peoples.

The moderator, the CBC's Falen Johnson, who is Mohawk and Tuscarora (Bear Clan) from Six Nations Grand River Territory, will explore First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation histories, identities and languages in conversation with these three authors of Nations to Nations: Indigenous Voices at Library and Archives Canada:
