Abstract:

"Since 2004, journalist Katherine Palmer Gordon has interviewed dozens of inspirational young First Nations people living in British Columbia - artists and community leaders, comedians and consultants, musicians and lawyers, people who are household names and those known only within their own communities. We Are Born with the Songs Inside Us collects sixteen candid stories gleaned from those interviews - stories of people who share an unshakeable belief in the importance of their cultural heritage to their well-being, to their success at what they do, and to their everyday lives."--Back cover.
