    Seven Feathers

    This is captivating and at the same disturbing. I have lived all my life in Canada and did not realize the scope of the problems the indigenous people are still facing. Residing close to the Six Nations I observed the problems in the Caledonia standoff. Their issues are never heard until something like this happens. It is 2018 and we have not come too much further in treating the indigenous fairly. It is no wonder they want their own government, and rightly so.

    Seven Fallen Feathers

    This a powerful account of the impact of systemic racism on the lives of indigenous in Canada and in particular, Northwestern Ontario and Thunder Bay. As a Canadian citizen and a former resident of Thunder Bay, i am ashamed that the deaths of seven indigenous youths have been so poorly investigated despite a similar pattern of events. Decades of government apathy in improving access to culturally appropriate high school education within the northern communities is apalling. If these youths were white, I think the supports and responses to missing minor children would have been different. As a society we can do better.

    Riveting!

    Tanya Talaga and her journalism partners should take pride in spreading the stories of injustices our indigenous peoples still face in this country on a daily basis. The newspapers in Canada should be as diligent as this book. I feel ashamed as a white Canadian that this has happened and continues to happen. A required read!!
