Call Me Indian: From the Trauma of Residential School to Becoming the NHL’s First Treaty Indigenous Player
In recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we invite all students, staff, and faculty to read the current Quiet Book Club selection Call Me Indian: From the Trauma of Residential School to Becoming the NHL’s First Treaty Indigenous Player by Fred Sasakamoose.
Recommended by Lloyd Desjarlais, Director of Indigenous Services at Red Deer Polytechnic, Call Me Indian is a story of racism and resilience and travels through trauma, triumph of NHL’s first Indigenous player.
I love the hockey stories and I really enjoyed reading about the relationships that were formed throughout the book between the author and people he had met in his travels that he considered family.
I also enjoyed the positive message that is relayed throughout the book, it’s a story about strength and overcoming challenges.”

Red Deer Polytechnic recognizes that our campus is situated on Treaty 7 land, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina and Stoney Nakoda peoples, and that the central Alberta region we serve falls under Treaty 6, traditional Métis, Cree and Saulteaux territory. We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land where RDP sits. This is where we will strive to honour and transform our relationships with one another.
