Description

Northern Wildflower is a memoir by Catherine Lafferty, Dene and Council Member for the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, centred around her life in the Northwest Territories and Alberta. With a foreword by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, this is the life story of Catherine Lafferty growing up and her struggle with intergenerational trauma, discrimination, poverty, addiction, love and loss. Irritated by the status quo, unsatisfied, in search of better and just world for those who know what it's like to live as an outsider in one's own territory, Northern Wildflower is about lost cultural identity and cultural awareness for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers.
