Nîtisânak is Nixon's memoir of kinship, loss, and queer love. The cyclical storytelling draws upon ancestral teachings and explores both despair and healing through community and family.
Moccasin Square Gardens is a collection of humourous short stories whose characters inhabit Denendah, the land of the people north of the sixtieth parallel. Capturing the characters and textures of small-town life, Van Camp uses oral storytelling techniques to interweave pop-culture, monsters of legend, medicine power and more.
Moon of the Crusted Snow is a post-apocalyptic novel that follows a small northern Anishinaabe community through darkness, isolation and societal collapse. Negotiating unwanted fleeing visitors from the south, the community must rely on traditional knowledge and beliefs to restore order.

The circle provides a safe space for Indigenous peoples to learn the stories and teachings of their culture. Sharing and storytelling circles are essential to ensuring that Indigenous cultural values and traditions continue to be passed down from generation to generation. Circles bring people together while connecting us all on a deeper and spiritual level.
Circles open with a smudge and prayer
