Growing Up Inuk

  • Carla Kristmar Harrison Simon Fraser University

Abstract

I have reviewed two Inuit young adult novels because I feel it is important that our literary canon in Canada include and embrace Indigenous literature. In particular, I would like to see books like Those Who Run in the Sky and Why the Monster being studied in secondary school classrooms throughout British Columbia.
