The Daughters of Aataentsic

International Women’s Day Book Launch.
To register for this event please click on the link to the KCK Public Library! Dr. Labelle and members of the Advisory Council will be present.

“Join us for a Zoom presentation by Dr. Kathryn Labelle, Associate Professor of Aboriginal History at the University of Saskatchewan, on her new book Daughters of Aataentsic: Life Stories from Seven Generations. Daughters of Aataentsic highlights and connects the unique lives of seven Wendat/Wandat women whose legacies are still felt today. Spanning the continent and the colonial borders of New France, British North America, Canada, and the United States, this book shows how Wendat people and place came together in Ontario, Quebec, Michigan, Ohio, Kansas, and Oklahoma, and how generations of activism became intimately tied with notions of family, community, motherwork, and legacy from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century.

A Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.” From the Library’s Website
