Thunderbird Stories is proud to announce our second year hosting our National Indigenous writing contest. The contest will run to February 29th, 2016.
Our stories & legends are an important part of our culture and ultimately this contest is to encourage more Indigenous people to start writing. The top five writers will have their stories featured in a book and the contest will be judged by 5 Indigenous people.
Portion of the proceeds will go towards Families of Sisters in Spirit, a volunteer, non-profit organization led by families of missing & murdered Aboriginal women. Through the efforts of this contest, we can assist Families of Sisters in Spirit to help continue their efforts in their search for missing and murdered Aboriginal Woman.
