In this award-winning book that explores the continued colonial exploitation of Indigenous people, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive after the world is nearly destroyed by global warming. Indigenous people of North America become hunted once it’s discovered that they are the only people who have retained the ability to dream and that their bone marrow can provide a cure.
Marrow Thieves author, Cherie Dimaline, is from the Georgian Bay Métis Nation in Canada. She has said of her identification, “I would love to be recognised as a writer of Indigenous stories. I’m not a Canadian writer. This is what is now known as Canada; it means something different to and for me.”
