Keeping and teaching the traditional ways of her people, Okanagan Native, Jeanette Armstrong, is a fluent Salish speaker from B.C. Canada. As an author of many books, her most famous book is Slash, an important work about a young Native man’s struggle with how and where he fits in his world. Armstrong uses literature and art as a teaching tool in education for Native young people. She is the director of the En’owkin Center, a cultural and educational organization operated by the Okanagan Nation. In 1989 she helped to found the En’owkin School of International Writing, which is the first credit-giving creative writing program in Canada to be managed and operated expressly by and for Native people. She will be speaking at the Merc Playhouse in Twisp on March 26th at 7pm. Info @ 509 997-4904 Suggested donation $12. Supported in part by Humanities WA.
