Indigenous Life in Canada: Past, Present, Future is a set of 32-page books written by Simon Rose for Beech Street Books. Designed for elementary students from grades 4 to 7 the books offer introductions to the history of Indigenous Peoples in the story of Canada. One of the volumes is Truth and Reconciliation, and covers this important topic that addresses the challenges and contributions faced by First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples from the time of residential schools and how the negative impacts of the past are declared and reconciled in the actions of Canadians and Indigenous Peoples. The impact of residential schools was heard through the moving testimony of survivors during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearing and final report.  The book provides a 32-page account for students new to this topic. It presents colour and archival photographs, a glossary of terms; suggested references; and an index.  The book contains simply written text illustrated with maps, charts, contemporary photographs and paintings. Each book has brief sidebars of additional details about a topic as well as suggested framing questions that assist students in using the historical inquiry method. Cultural content advisor is Agnes Pawlowska-Mainville, Assistant Professor, First Nations Studies, University of Northern British Columbia. Levelled Guided Reading: V. Recommended.
