For twenty-five years Kegedonce Press has been crafting beautiful books that involve Indigenous Peoples at all levels of production. We support the enterprise of Indigenous writers, artists, graphic illustrators, designers, editors, printers and others in related fields. Founded in 1993 by Anishinaabe writer Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, Kegedonce is committed to the publication of beautifully written and designed Indigenous literature, both nationally and internationally.
Kegedonce has published works by some of the most widely known contemporary Indigenous writers in Canada, including Joanne Arnott, Cherie Dimaline, Marilyn Dumont, Aaron Paquette, Sharron Proulx-Turner, Gregory Scofield, and Richard Van Camp, among many others.
One of only three dedicated Indigenous publishers in Canada, Kegedonce Press is the only Indigenous publishing company in Ontario. Native-owned and operated, Kegedonce is based at Neyaashiinigmiing, on the traditional territory of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation. Our owner and Managing Editor is Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm of the Chippewas of Nawash; our Publishing Manager is Renee K. Abram, of the Oneida Nation (Onyota’a:ka), Wolf clan.
Kegedonce will host an anniversary party at the Toronto International Festival of Authors in October at Harbourfront Centre.
