This book is a gift. Through the story of her mother, Bonita Nowell weaves together a poetic story of Indigenous strength, resilience, and humour. This is a remarkable contribution to how we understand the legacy of Indian Residential Schools in the North but also how Métis forms of storytelling and ancestral knowledge continues to guide our worldviews as Indigenous Peoples. This book is a must read for Canadians of all backgrounds and heritages.
─Dr. Crystal Gail Fraser, Gwichyà Gwich’in historian
