About the Book

Created in consultation with Indigenous and non-Indigenous colleagues at Global Affairs Canada and with Elders, knowledge-keepers, and leaders from First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities, this book reaches out to children, parents, and educators with messages of compassion and respect between peoples and of reverence for Nature.

Inspired by Call to Action #57 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, this book encourages the education about the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada and the shared heritage of Canadians.

Images of the over 150 faceless dolls, crafted during a faceless doll workshop at Global Affairs Canada in 2016, grace the pages of the book to acknowledge, honour and recognize missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and their families and communities who mourn them.

Net proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to support Indigenous youth educational programs across Canada.

Conçu après consultation auprés des collègues autochtones et non autochtones d’Affaires mondiales Canada, et avec des aîné(e)s, des gardien(ne)s du savoir, ainsi que des leaders des Premières nations et des communautés Inuits et Métis, ce livre transmet aux enfants, aux parents et aux éducateurs des messages de compassion et d’harmonie entre les peuples, ainsi que de respect à l’égard de la Nature.

Inspiré par l’appel à l’action n ° 57 de la Commission de vérité et réconciliation, ce livre vise à favoriser l’enseignement de l’histoire et de la culture des peuples autochtones au Canada et du patrimoine commun des Canadiens.

Des images de plus de 150 poupées sans visage, créées lors d’un atelier de poupées sans visage organisé à Affaires mondiales Canada en 2016, ornent les pages du livres pour faire reconnaître et honorer les femmes et les filles autochtones disparues et assassinées, ainsi que leurs familles et les communautés qui les pleurent.

Les revenus nets générés par la vente de ce livre seront versés en appui aux programmes d’éducation des jeunes Autochtones partout au Canada.
