As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature – Virtual Book Club

July Title: The Creator’s Game by Allan Downey

Wednesday, July 27, 7:00pm

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? Please join our digital book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary Native authors. This month, we will be reading and discussing The Creator’s Game by Dr. Allan Downey (Dakelh Nation). In this book, Downey focuses on the history of lacrosse in Indigenous communities and explores Indigenous-Non-Indigenous relations as well as Indigenous identity formation. Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS staff on Zoom.

In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited. In order to obtain a Zoom link, please register below.
