Exposing Five Myths About Indigenous Peoples

Publication: New Trail

Chelsea Vowel, ’00 BEd, ’09 LLB, speaks from the heart when she says myths about Indigenous peoples devalue the very real pain that is the legacy of abuse and oppression. In her book, Indigenous Writes: A Guide to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Issues in Canada, Vowel explores the experience of Indigenous peoples from the time of contact to the present, using her own experiences to tackle themes including culture and identity, myth-busting, state violence, land, law and treaties.

Read as Chelsea Vowel, a Métis author, unpacks pervasive misconceptions.
