Joseph Boyden is a Canadian novelist of Irish, Scottish, and Anishnaabe heritage whose prize-winning books, Three Day Road, Through Black Spruce, and The Orenda, deal with First Nations history and experience. He wrote a ballet for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet about residential schools, Going Home Star -- Truth and Reconciliation, which premiered in 2014. He is a leader in the vital task of imagining and giving artistic expression to indigenous experience. Canadian readers have come to rely on him for an understanding of where we truly are and how far we must travel with regards to reconciliation.
