Five inspirations, compiled monthly 

July edition​​​


  • If you haven't already, please read the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action; e-mail your local MP and the prime minister and demand follow-through on all action items. Keep emailing until action occurs. 

  • Donate to the Indian Residential School School Survivor Society.

  • It is our responsibility as settlers to educate ourselves and our children about Residential Schools. When We Were Alone by David A. Anderson and illustrated by Julie Flett shares this history, and is grounded in empowerment and intergenerational relationship. 

  • Support Indigenous joy and read the hilarious and stunning play Kamloopa by Kim Senklip Harvey, which just won the Governor General's Literary Award for Drama. 

  • Sisters Sage (an Indigenous owned small business by sisters Lynn-Marie & Melissa-Rae Angus) makes beautiful soaps and bath bombs (my favourite is the cedar: it takes me back to walks in West Coast forests.)
