that this was a book that I was assigned to read for school I would also like to admit that I did not think that I would enjoy this book, but wow, was I wrong.Despite being Canadian, I grew up rather oblivious to the hardships that the Canadian Indigenous population face This changed rather recently due to two law classes In one of these classes, my teacher was very passionate and outspoken

recently due to two law classes In one of these classes, my teacher was very passionate and outspoken regarding the hardships that our Indigenous population face This was a blessing It opened my eyes to other cultures and our systematic mistreatment and miscarriages of justice towards our native population In a way, it seemed like fate would direct me to this book Born with a Tooth aided to further educate me on certain topics without overtly telling me if that makes sense Born with a Tooth did not fail to elicit strong emotions from me I felt deep connections to many of the characters My heart would break as characters would casually speak of the language barriers in their communities due to residential schools This is just one of many examples.I will be recommending this book to so many people Born with a Tooth is truly beautiful and eye opening I wish that I could have found it sooner Born with a Tooth, Joseph BoydenBefore internationally acclaimed author Joseph Boyden

variety of voices and describing the surroundings Once I was into the stories though, I was hooked I especially loved the final 4 stories which all tie together.His stories are quiet, but powerful They look into the often mundane or average aspects of reservation life in Canada, but Boyden is able to suffuse so much into his characters that the stories are never boring Honestly, I would ve been happy with any of these stories being turned into full novels He s that good I d put off Boyden for a while after he became the subject of national controversy after his Indigenous identity was called into question The writer of the article tagged above does a better job digging into the nuance of that situation than I d attempt, and is worth a read if you re trying to come to terms with the Boyden situation Personally, I try and draw a dividing line between an artist s conduct and their work It s a bit tough with Boyden since his advocacy for the Canadian Indigenous I d put off Boyden for a

that situation than I d attempt, and is worth a read if you re trying to come to terms with the Boyden situation Personally, I try and draw a dividing line between an artist s conduct and their work It s a bit tough with Boyden since his advocacy for the Canadian Indigenous people and his reputation were built upon his perceived heritage I m not sure I ve reconciled my divided feelings on the man, but I knew I wanted to return to his work after really enjoying Three Day Road and being pretty moved by Wenjack Fortunately, all of my hesitation was alleviated when I walked into the painfully violent, dark, and emotionally volatile stories of Boyden in Born With A Tooth Over the course of 13 stories divided into East Labour , South Ruin , West Running , and North Home , Boyden details stories of abuse, murder, the ravages of addiction, cultural genocide, and the legacy of residential schools, all set in different Ontario locations Boyden examines reserves with an unflinching narrative eye, showing both moments of depravity and hope couched in the history of Canada s Indigenous peoples The eponymous story details a teenage girl who s obsession with a wolf leads to her exploitation by a visiting teacher Men Don t Ask was the most harrowing story for me in its bleak portrayal of violence against aboriginal women Painted Tongue is one of the few stories set in Toronto and is a heartbreaking look at a man lost to drink reminiscing about the loss of his dignity as well as his land The weakest story of the bunch for me was Abitibi Canyon It wasn t bad, but it didn t live up to the quality of the other stories in this collection But it is the beautifully woven final four short stories that depict four individuals living in Sharpening Teeth after a young woman s suicide Boyden has become a key figure in opening the discussion about reconciliation in Canada, and his novels and short stories provide a window into a part of the nation that all too many Canadians never know These short stories rocked me Some were so dark that I d have to put the collection down for days before resuming my reading They also surprised me with moments of beauty and understanding Even if I m conflicted about the man, I find it pretty hard not to enjoy his writing 4.5 Stars
