White Indigenous Woman is published in a collection called In This Together: Fifteen Stories of Truth and Reconciliation. Editor Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail (Brindle & Glass, 2016).
From the book cover:
Evocative and unsettling, In This Together is an eye-opening collection of personal essays by Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors from across Canada. Without flinching, the contributors – including journalists, academics, and artists – each explore their own “aha” moments regarding Canada’s colonial past and present to ask how we can all move forward in a spirit of reconciliation and anti-racism.
Featuring a candid conversation between the Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair and CBC radio host Shelagh Rogers, this book is both a catalyst for self-reflection and a call to action.

The Edmonton Heritage Council encourages citizens to contribute stories about Edmonton. In 2015 I wrote several entries for Edmonton Maps Heritage that tell about some local sites that are important to Indigenous peoples in Edmonton.
