Binding: Paper

With astonishing detail, Albert Canadien fondly recounts his boyhood years in Lishamie, a traditional Dene camp north of the Mackenzie River, and reflects on the devastating and long-lasting impact residential schooling had on him, his family and his people. Separated at a young age from his parents and forced to attend a strict Catholic boarding school, the author—and many like him—was robbed of his language, community and traditional way of living. From Lishamie is a candid memoir of loss and of the journey back.
