by Jesse Wente
Wente “argues that ‘reconciliation’ is a flawed concept; peace between First Nations and the state of Canada can’t be recovered through reconciliation because no such relationship ever existed”. Wente’s writing is powerful; he conveys his message clearly, using his experiences growing up as an Indigenous person in Canada.
I would use this book in my classroom, and should be in every school library.
An important author,
an important book,
an important message.
