Indian Woman I Am: Pain, Hope, Courage and Survival

“My name is Evelyn Morales of Saulteaux, Ojibway, Cree, Scottish and French ancestral lines.  I was born in Manitoba and given the spirit name “One Storm Thunder Lightning Woman”.  I am a mother, grandmother, an Aboriginal, and a Christian woman.  I have survived many traumas throughout my life from experiencing residential school, a broken home, and broken relationships to living in a home school for girls, foster homes and ultimately, living homeless.”

So begins Morales’ book Indian Woman I Am, a moving and uplifting story of how she overcame devastating life events to become a strong and inspiring woman.  We are pleased to host Evelyn as she reads from her book, demonstrates hand drumming, shares her story and answers questions. We hope you will join us Thursday, November 10 at 6:30 pm in the Living Room at Central Library to hear her remarkable tale and gain insight into a rich Canadian culture.

  1. Hi Janet. I am sorry I didn’t see your comment until now. Actually, I had the same question for Sue. We will work on that. In the meantime, here is my contact information and my link to my book on Amazon. Check out some of my videos on you tube too. Enjoy!

    Why is this book not available at the Windsor Public Library?

    • Sue says:

      Hi Janet,

      Thanks for your question. The book is not available for sale online or in bookstores. The author would need to approach the library staff who purchase items for the library about having the book included in the collection.

      The author generously donated a copy to have on display at the Self-Publishing Lab at Central, and she will have copies for sale at her reading on Thursday.

      I hope this helps.

        Hi Janet,

        We are happy to announce that we were able to purchase a copy for the library. As soon as it is catalogued it will be available for circulation. Watch for it in Bibliocommons!
