Mi’kmaq Books on Display at Kindale Library

Mi'kmaq Books at Kindale Library
A selection of books by and about Mi’kmaq are on display at Kindale Library in anticipation of Aboriginal Day, June 21st.

Kindale Library in Stephenville presently has a display of books related to Mi’kmaq people and our culture. There are books for all ages, and include stories written in the Mi’kmaw language—a perfect opportunity to learn more about where we come from, and to regain some of the knowledge we have lost. This display has been put together in anticipation of Aboriginal Day, which is on June 21st. Check them out!

If you’d like to purchase any of these books, you can find many of them online at sites like Amazon and Indigo. Alternatively, check out the selection on the website of author Dorothy Stewart. She provides links to where you can purchase books, and a portion of each sale will go to her. Some books may even be freely available for downloading Finally, you can also check out Nimbus Publishing, which has a section on Mi’kmaq books.
