First Nations
Youth Literature Inventory

The First Nations Education Council (FNEC) is pleased to present the First Nations Youth Literature Inventory created for its member community schools.

The Inventory gives teachers, librarians and other education professionals easy access to children’s books written by Indigenous authors, or on topics of interest to First Nations members.

The creation of the Inventory started with an analysis of works listed on specialized websites or distributed by Librairie Hannerorak. Before writing a summary of each one of the books listed, a researcher categorized them using bibliographic entries focussing on Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal authors in Quebec and Canada whose works showcase First Nations life, culture and history.

Note that that the Inventory does not constitute a complete list of First Nations literature, and not all of them have been reviewed. As such, some may be considered inappropriate. Help us improve the Inventory by sending us your comments at
