About Glass Beads

Glass Beads is written by Saskatchewan-born Indigenous author, actor and comedian, Dawn Dumont. It's a collection of interconnected short stories that focus on the lives of four First Nations people against a backdrop of two decades of political, social and cultural change.

With this selection, One eRead Canada seeks to foster national conversation around reconciliation, Indigenous experiences and the importance of #ownvoices stories.

"Comparable to the complexity of Richard Van Camp's work, Glass Beads is a compelling representation of urban Indigenous life." — Jade Colbert, The Globe and Mail

"Glass Beads is deeply political but never ideological. Its characters are full and complex. ...[T]his book tells the stories of people vastly underrepresented in CanLit." — J.C. Sutcliffe, Quill & Quire
