In our ongoing quest to become better librarians by reading every genre (regardless of our actual interest) we tackle Aboriginal, Indigenous, and First Nations Books.  

This episode we're looking at another thematic genre/non-genre, so join us as we discuss the problems of reading aboriginal or indigenous characters written by non-indigenous authors, how we really didn’t get enough education in First Nations/Native Americans in school, and why it’s hard to find Australian Aboriginal or Sami books in Vancouver libraries.

Questions

  • Are there any First Nations mysteries?
  • Are there Indigenous/Aboriginal specific genres?
  • Does your library have an Aboriginal/Indigenous/First Nations section, sticker, or other method of bringing attention to these titles?
  • Is there anything that we missed, misunderstood, or misspoke on?
