JAccuse, an open letter to the rest of us about the many ways we contribute through act or inaction to suicides and damaged existences in Canadas Indigenous communities Tanya Talagas account of teen lives and deaths in and near Thunder Bay is detailed, balanced and heart rending Talaga describes gaps in the system large enough for beloved children and adults to fall through, endemic indifference, casual racism and a persistent lack of resources It is impossible to read this book and come away unchanged RBC Taylor Prize Jury Citation In Seven Fallen Feathers, Tanya Talaga delves into the lives of seven Indigenous students who died while attending high school in Thunder Bay over the first eleven years of this century With a narrative voice encompassing lyrical creation myth, razor sharp reporting, and a searing critique of Canadas ongoing colonial legacy, Talaga binds these tragedies and the ambivalent response from police and government into a compelling tapestry This vivid, wrenching book shatters the air of abstraction that so often permeates news of the injustices Indigenous communities face every day It is impossible to read Seven Fallen Feathers and not care about the lives lost, the families thrust into purgatory, while the rest of society looks away Hilary Weston Writers Trust Prize for Nonfiction Jury Citation Tanya Talagas powerful book is a hard hitting story of the realities of Canadian racism, complicity, and Indigenous suffering It is also a testament to the resilience of the Anishinaabe families who endure the crushing impacts of historic and contemporary injustices In spare prose and a direct voice, Talaga documents the tragedies of the lost lives of Indigenous youth while creating a compelling narrative that educates the reader on the sad history of Indigenous White relations This book is a crucial document of our times, and vital to the emergence of a true vision of justice in Canada Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing Jury Citation A n urgent and unshakable portrait of the horrors faced by Indigenous teens going to school in Thunder Bay, Ontario, far from their homes and families Talagas incisive research and breathtaking storytelling could bring this community one step closer to the healing it deserves Booklist, STARRED REVIEW You simply must read this book Tanya Talaga has done the hard work for us She sat with the families, heard their stories Now, with the keen eye and meticulous research of an uncompromising journalist, she is sharing their truths We have to start listening Parents are sending their children to school in Thunder Bay to watch them die Racism, police indifference, bureaucratic ineptitude, lateral violence it doesnt have to be this way Let this book enrage you and then demand that Canada act now Duncan McCue, host of Cross Country Checkup on CBC Radio Seven Fallen Feathers is achingly blunt in confronting recurring damage that must be repaired The book puts a human face to the headline statistics, reveals the continuing harm of unequal educational opportunity, and delivers the evidence of systemic racism in Canada with an insistent voice Tanya Talaga draws the reader into communities of hurt and flawed responses surrounding the deaths of seven Indigenous students, the fallen feathers Talaga yanks at the readers complacency with her story of separated families, untethered youths, and the seemingly unbridgeable distance between cultures She offers painful lessons while courting hope BC National Award for Canadian Non Fiction Jury Citation This story is hard and harrowing, but Talaga tells it with the care of a storyteller and the factual attention of a journalist She makes the difficult connections between this national tragedy and the greater colonial systems that have endangered our most vulnerable for over a century, and she does it all with a keen, compassionate eye for all involved, especially the families who are too often overlooked These stories need to be heard These young people deserve nothing less than to be honoured everywhere Katherena Vermette, bestselling author of The Break Once started, this book is difficult to put down At

investigation process, to the final visit in the coroners office Its a heartbreaking portrait of an indifferent and often callous system Seven Fallen Feathers is a must read for all Canadians It shows us where we came from, where were at, and what we need to do to make the country a better place for us all The Walrus Talagas research is meticulous and her journalistic style is crisp and uncompromising The book is heartbreaking and infuriating, both an important testament to the need for change and a call to action Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW What is happening in Thunder Bay is

to be justly infuriated by Globe and Mail This is a book that everyone should read it will grip you, make you think and help you understand better what has led up to the horrific experiences of young
