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.”
