A must read recommendation

Thomas-KingThis book was given to us as a Christmas present from a dear friend of ours who said:  ”  I was watching Rex Murphy on the CBC and Rex asked Shawn Atleo, the Grand Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, what was the best book he had read recently and Chief Atleo said without hesitation – The Inconvenient Indian by Thomas King.”   So, Paul Merrick, our dear friend gave us this book for Christmas. The book is wry, funny, sad and informative.  If you want to understand what the “Idle No More Movement” is about – read this book.  I feel like going out and buying a box of copies so that every time anyone asked me about the “Indian” question in North America, I could give them a copy and tell them that we can have this conversation after they have read the book.
