Indigenous Peoples Literature Society

Why?

I believe that reading literature from underrepresented groups will lay a foundation of understanding, acceptance, and tolerance, ultimately creating a world of peace and  gender equality. Coupled with education, this will help us move closer to building a world with equal 

opportunity for all.
