Virtual Author Event: Eldon Yellowhorn and Kathy Lowinger

2021 Red Cedar Book Award nominated authors will present about their book What the Eagle Sees: Indigenous Stories of Rebellion and Renewal.

This important work tells the stories of what Indigenous people did when invaders arrived on their homelands. What the Eagle Sees shares accounts of the people, places, and events that have mattered in Indigenous history from a vastly under-represented perspective—an Indigenous viewpoint.

Dr. Eldon Yellowhorn is a member of the Piikani Nation and is a professor at Simon Fraser University where he teaches Indigenous Studies. 

Kathy Lowinger is an award-winning children’s author based in Toronto.

The presentation is suited to children in grades 4-7. 

Individuals may register online. Classes from North Vancouver District Elementary Schools are also invited to attend and will be sent the Zoom link to the presentation.
