Hillsdale, ON – Red Quills consulting business launched their Red Quills Book Box Indigenous Narrative initiative in Hillsdale, ON. today. Through this initiative, books will be available to help promote understanding, education, equality and inclusion.

Red Quills Book Box was unveiled yesterday on a Facebook page due to the COVID restrictions. The library is filled with books that provide perspectives on genocide and residential schools; stories, history and other Indigenous narratives; along with children’s books for all readers.

“As an Indigenous women growing up, I never found books that related to my story as a child and the ones that were available when I was younger were incorrectly written and used terminology that was not respectable,” I am so proud of this initiative to amplify Indigenous narratives.

The library has a QR code attached to it for you to scan and join the group discussions. In sharing these books, we want to hear what all community members’ thoughts are on the books they have read. This opens discussion with other Indigenous or Non-Indigenous book lovers. With National Truth and Reconciliation Day approaching it is important to reflect and learn more about Indigenous narratives and history. We hope the books will make their way back to the box of others to enjoy.

If you would like to donate books or learn more, please contact us.
