During the summer of 2004, Indigenous people from the Downtown Eastside got a chance to tell stories of their community through their eyes.

Follow the Eagle, reminds us of the importance of Elders, especially in the inner city. The Elders-in-Training project started by the Aboriginal Front Door Society is helping the next generation of Elders learn how to take on their important role. Slo-Pitch tells the story of the Downtown Eastside Slo-Pitch League, which has created family-oriented recreation in the heart of the city for over 25 years.

Wild rice dreams by Vera Wabegijig( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wild Rice Dreams is a collection of Aboriginal poetry that delves into the human experience with spotlight on urban Aboriginal life. The poems explore spiritual transformations and perception of the ever-present knowledge of being hunted by not so distant cruel past. Vera Wabegijig speaks to the power of ordinary Aboriginal people in Canada, ignites our imagination, and connects us to our past, current, and future feelings. She demonstrates deep understanding of native vitality and appreciation of different cultural legacies in vigorous relationship with each other. The book explores how complicated relationships between people, dreams, and memories play an integral role in the complex life of being Anishinaabe."--

He told me he was going to call me again and what you will have to do is respond to him.
