This title is a 149-page, soft-cover book that includes a rich array of short stories, poetry, music lyrics, graphic art, articles, essays, and other pieces that will have students laughing, crying, talking, and thinking. It is a true celebration of First Nations, Inuit and Métis writing and art."
from Lakehead University News:

Rachel Mishenene, a contract faculty member and MEd student in the Faculty of Education, was one of two education advisors for McGraw-Hill's Native Studies / Literacy textbook, "Strength and Struggle: Perspectives from First Nation, Inuit and Metis Peoples in Canada." With her co-author Dr. Pamela Toulouse, Rachel selected numerous well-crafted and inspirational short stories, poems, recipes, songs and beautiful visual and graphic art by First Nation, Metis and Inuit people across Canada and then developed rich corresponding lessons.

Hope to see you there!
