Redpath Book Display

Indigenous Awareness


This virtual display was created in 2021 for McGill's Indigenous Awareness Weeks and continues to live on as a source of reading inspiration for Indigenous-authored content. To see the 2022 Indigenous Stories content, please visit this post curated by Claire Grenier, IMPRESS (Indigenous Mentorship and Paid Research Experience for Summer Students) summer intern.

September 30th, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. After centuries of trauma and abuse toward Indigenous Peoples, Canadians are making efforts to decolonize our spaces and repair generations of harm caused by colonization. This display is a continuation of our Indigenous Awareness display that was up in the Redpath Library for September 2021. We hope that here you can be inspired to read material from Indigenous voices and learn more about the multitude of Indigenous cultures that make up these lands. We acknowledge the lands on which McGill University is located have long served as a site of meeting an exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudennosaunee and the Anishinageg nations. This display was created by Librarians and Staff in our Indigenous Issues Interest Group, we recognize that we are settlers and if anyone has any comments or suggestions to improve this display, please feel free to send us an email at
